Overtime pay laws are sometimes tricky to keep up with as they apply on a workweek-by-workweek basis. If your weekly earnings differ, your overtime rate may also vary. We’ve provided the below Overtime Pay Calculator as a tool to help you figure out what your correct overtime rate should be for a given workweek.
Is your basic rate of pay:
Are you a salesperson whose primary job duty is making sales at their customers’ locations - not over the phone or internet?
Is the salary supposed to cover 40 hours per week or some other amount
Can your salary be docked any reason other than
Do you have management responsibilities, including supervision of two or more full-time employees?
Do you hire and fire employees, or have responsibility for creating company policy?
Are you in a field where your job requires advanced schooling or academic training?
Did you earn more than one hourly rate this week?
Did you receive any performance/attendance bonuses, extra pay for waiting or call time, commissions, per diems, or stipends for work performed during this week?
Are you a computer systems analyst, a computer programmer, or a software engineer?
This is the rate that you should’ve been paid per hour for all time worked over 40 hours this workweek
