Under the Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA), the overtime pay laws generally permit factory workers who work in factories on the line, in production or maintenance, or in any other position that involves repetitive operations with their hands, physical skill and energy to receive overtime wages.
However, what most factory workers do not know about the law is that under the FLSA, any time you spend preparing for work by, (i.e. putting on and taking off required protective equipment) may also be compensable under the Act. Too often, an employer does not compensate an employee for this additional required time at the work place.
