Overtime is payment to an employee of one and onehalf (1.5) times the regular hourly wage for work performed in excess of 40 hours in a 7day week. For some occupations in Maryland, overtime is calculated based on a different period of time. Certain farmworkers, for example, receive overtime for hours worked over 60 in a week. However, under state and federal laws, some employers are exempt from the requirement to pay overtime, and some employees are exempt from the right to receive it.
Have you been discriminated against by a potential or current employer -- as a job applicant or current employee? To best protect your legal rights you should discuss your situation with an employment lawyer. Meet with a local employment for employees attorney sooner rather than later to protect your rights.
