I have two positions at my job and my boss just told me she

Customer Question

I have two positions at my job and my boss just told me she looks at my time punches and adds up my job seperatly.
I worked 54 hours and she recorded my hours as 21.95 OT .75 for one job & 33.03 OT 2.63 for another job.
I think that is unfair, total I worked 14 hours of overtime and I was only paid for 3.38.
Is it correct that all hours over 40 are considered overtime?
Depending on what job I did those hours
Would be calculated time and half?
I didn't sign anything stating that I do not get paid overtime and I didn't even notice this had happen. So now I wonder how long this has been going on?

You need to file a wage complaint here.I agree you are due overtime if this is the same employer for both positions.You file a complaint with the Department of Labor.They will get you the pay you are due and the employer may be fined.This is just wrong on employers part.

File here

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again and the best here.

If you had too you can sue here in small claims but the DOL should be able to resolve this.

Thank you. I was so thrown off because I printed out paperwork for her and she told me I didn't need to do that. Then she preceded to tell me what she does with my check.
