Erie Insurance Group employees often work long hours every week handling claims and assisting customers for the insurance company. This is especially true when natural disasters occur or other events that give rise to a large number of claims at the same time. When this occurs, employees are often required to work more than 40 hours a week but do not receive the required amount of overtime pay.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires employers to pay non-exempt employees an overtime wage of time-and-a-half for all hours worked over 40 in one workweek. Some states have also enacted overtime laws that regulate the number of hours an employee can work within 24 hours before receiving overtime. In calculating the number of hours worked, the employer must consider all required work performed in all facilities and departments, both before and after a shift, including staff meetings and required paid training. Insurance company employees are often entitled to overtime pay.
