Yes, a pipeline inspector may be entitled to overtime pay from the gas company they work for if they worked in excess of 40 hours in a single work week. However, each case is different and that is why if you work as a pipeline inspector and believe that your employer is violating the law by not properly paying you overtime wages you should consult with an experienced attorney.
According to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employers are required to pay all non-exempt Pipeline Inspectors 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.
There are strict time limitations for filing a claim so it is important that you discuss your case in a timely manner.
