A: If you not exempt from overtime pay, then your employer must pay you the appropriate overtime premium for all overtime hours worked. In general this includes all hours worked in excess of 8 hours in a day or in excess of 40 hours in a week. Your employer must also accurately report and compensate you for all of your work hours. The time should be reflected on a wage statement that your employer is required to provide with your paycheck.
If your employer is not complying with its obligations, then you should consider contacting an employment lawyer to discuss your rights and options in more detail.
