Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the overtime laws for telemarketers is that they must be paid for all hours worked after 40 hours in a workweek. The failure to do so would bring rise to an overtime lawsuit that would seek money damages for payment of unpaid or underpaid wages, attorney’s fees, and litigation expenses, and even liquidated damages.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) also sets the required amount of overtime pay to a telemarketer which is one and one-half their regular rate of pay. In addition, under the FLSA, telemarketers are entitled to compensation as soon as they start the computer, log into telephone systems, download programs and email, or have otherwise started an activity to benefit the company.
