Yes, a salaried employee may be entitled to overtime pay for working more than a 40 hour work week. Companies often tell workers making a salary that they have to work overtime hours but are not entitled to such benefits because they are not an hourly paid worker. However, this may be in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and it may give rise to an unpaid overtime lawsuit.
The FLSA looks to the actual job duties to determine whether an employee is exempt from FLSA minimum wage and overtime pay laws. If you are a salaried employee working more than a 40 hour work week and not receiving wages, it may be in your best interest to speak to an attorney to discuss your case and see if your employer is violating the law.
There are strict statutes of limitations to file these types of lawsuits so it is important that you do not wait. If you wait too long, you may lose your ability to recover some or all of your back pay.
