Asked in Employment Law for Florida

Q: Who can I contact about unpaid overtime

I work overnight from 10pm-7am on Friday night I get two hours and the other six roll over to the next week (Saturday is the start of a new week) so they pushed all my hours to Friday so they didn't have to pay the overtime

A: Employers have the right to structure their work time needs. The system used here appears legal because it accurately records time worked each day of the week.

As long as employers do not require employees to work more than 40 hours in any one work week, or more than 8 hours in any one day, they can arrange their work schedules to fit with their particular needs.
