Yes, a day-rate worker may be entitled to overtime pay. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employers are required to pay Day-Rate Workers overtime for all hours worked over 40 in the workweek. Some states have also enacted overtime laws that regulate the number of hours an employee can work within 24 hours before receiving overtime.
