Legal Answers
Q. I am an hourly worker, I am required to be at work and do work, I do college assignemnts when free do I get pay during?
A: Whether an employee is entitled to pay will depend on the circumstances. If you are required to be at work and are performing work, this is certainly compensable time. Employees must be paid for work suffered or permitted. Based on your description of the issue, you are at work and are required to be there and perform work. This certainly sounds like compensable work. In addition, to the extent that you work in excess of 40 hours in a workweek, you are entitled to overtime pay at 1.5 times your regular rate of pay for the overtime work. It would be helpful to speak with an employment lawyer that specializes in wage and hour disputes to the extent that you have further questions. An experienced employment attorney can gather additional facts about your employment to ensure that you are being properly paid for all time spent working. Oftentimes, a thorough consultation will result in additional ways that your employer may not be properly paying you in accordance with federal and state wage and hour laws. In a recent case, we represented a group of employees who were only paid to the extent that their employer was able to bill the employer's customers for the work performed. The Fair Labor Standards Act does not allow an employer to condition employment for work performed on whether the employer is receiving reimbursement for such work. Our office handles wage and hour disputes and would welcome the opportunity to provide you with a free consultation regarding your rights to be paid for work performed by your employer. Feel free to contact our employment lawyers for a consultation. https://www.mcoffmanlegal.com/columbus-wage-hour-attorney/unpaid-overtime/
