Are Employees Owed Overtime After A Certain Number Of Hours Worked In A Day?

In most cases, no. Even an employee who works 24 hours in one day will be owed no overtime if he works no more than 40 hours in the workweek. Employees of manufacturing establishments must receive overtime after 10 hours in a day. Special overtime rules also apply to government agencies, canneries and some hospital employees. For more information see the Oregon Wage and Hour Laws Handbook.
