At home call center employees are often required to work more than 40 hours a week but do not get paid overtime wages. Extra time is often required to boot up a computer or review scripts before the “official work day.” Even though this may be only an extra ten to fifteen minutes extra a day, it adds up to significant hours over weeks, months, and years.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage & Hour Division, covered nonexempt employees are entitled to be paid at least the federal minimum wage as well as overtime at time and one-half their regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek. This includes employees who work at call centers or out of their own home.
