What are my rights if my employer cheats me out of overtime pay?

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires employers to pay non-exempt workers an overtime wage of time-and-a-half for all hours worked over 40 in one workweek.  Some states have also enacted overtime laws that regulate the number of hours an employee can work within 24 hours before receiving overtime.

Money damages awarded to the employee will include the amount the employee was paid and the amount that should have been paid had their waged been calculated properly. Claims for unpaid wages can often be sought dating two years back from the filing of the lawsuit and continue forward until the case is settled.  In some states, certain laws permit the claims to seek unpaid wages even more than two years in the past.
