If I Work More Than 40 Hours A Week Do I Automatically Get Overtime Pay?

Some businesses are not required to pay overtime. However, if, in any one workweek, you are engaged in interstate commerce (such as doing credit card transactions); or, if the business has an annual gross volume of sales in the amount of $500,000 or more, you should contact the Federal Wage and Hour Office in Burlington at 802­951­6283 or in New Hampshire at 603­666­7716.
