You must be paid at least $684.00 per week or $35, 568.00 per year beginning January 1, 2020, to be denied overtime as an Executive, Administrative or Professional employee. The announcement today raises the salary level for the most common Fair Labor Standards Act exemptions from overtime.
If you work at two jobs for one employer, overtime pay is due if you work more than 40 hours in the week at the two jobs combined. Even if the two jobs are at different locations owned by the same employer, the hours are totaled.
Many jobs pay a “Day Rate”. The Day Rate pays a set amount no matter how many hours are worked. Even if you are paid a Day Rate, you are still owed overtime above the Day Rate when you work more than 40 hours in a single week .
