A: If you are non exempt and are working more than 50 hours a week but only getting paid for 40, you most likely have a right to over time and possibly back payment of any overtime you haven’t been paid for. Contact a lawyer as soon as possible

A: I agree with Attorney Chidolue. You may have a right to overtime pay. You need to consult with an employment law attorney in your area to get a full evaluation.
