PAYMENT FOR OVERTIME

What Kind of Time Should I Be Paid for?


--Waiting Time--

--On-Call Time--

--Rest & Meal Time--

--Sleeping Time--

--Lectures, Meetings, & Training--

--Travel  Away From Home Community--




 Problems arise when employers fail to recognize and count certain hours worked as compensable hours.


 For example, an employee who remains at his/her desk while eating lunch and regularly answers the telephone and refers callers is working. This time must be counted and paid as compensable hours worked because the employee has not been completely relieved from duty.
