The regular workweek is 40 hours. Any time worked above that mark should be rewarded with overtime pay. However, unscrupulous employers will sometimes try to skirt their financial obligations by engaging in deceptive and illegal practices. Fortunately for employees, the law is on your side.
With few exemptions, employees are entitled to time and a half pay for working above and beyond the typical workweek. If an employer refuses to pay you overtime, you have some recourse. Protections built into the law can help you recoup any unpaid overtime wages.
The unpaid overtime lawyers at The Eichholz Law Firm provide professional legal services to workers in Georgia who have been denied overtime pay.
