Call center overtime pay laws require that an employer pay overtime wages to employees who work more than 40 hours a week. Call centers often require workers to arrive early to boot up a computer or load dialing software but do not add those extra minutes into the time worked when calculating the paycheck. The same is true for required time spent at the end of a shift. This is a clear violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
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.
Our experienced overtime pay attorneys can determine whether you are entitled to overtime wages based upon your job description, job duties, rate of pay, and number of hours worked. You are entitled to these wages against your current employer or past call center employer. There are strict time deadlines for filing lawsuits so it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately.
