I have worked as an instructional assistant in a school system for many years. I was working at the high school basketball game taking up money at the door. I was told by my superintendent a few days later that I needed to fill out a irregularity form because that is overtime pay for me. I have worked as the film person for the basketball team and taking up money for the basketball games since 2005. I would like to know am I entitled for pay not just for that one game but all the games I have worked?
Hello and thank you for the question. I am sorry to read of this dilemma.
Are you paid by the hour?
are you classified as exempt or non exempt?
yes. I am an hourly employee and non exempt. I make about 20,000 a year and i assist teachers.
Thank you for that
If so paid and classified,
for those additional hours worked, the employer has to pay you
and if it crossed into overtime range over 40 hours for the week
overtime is due
I hope that is clear
let me know if I can clarify anything
Yes. It was over my 40 hours worked. My concern is if it has to be paid in full and i never rode the bus so milage would be included. is that correct?
That is correct
This should be recorded in a letter
and asked to be paid
if not paid, you have the labor board and small claims court as options
when ready, kindly click accept
if need further clarification, please ask me
Does this overtime money have to be paid in full or can the system spread it out in my monthly checks?
in full and right away
but you could agree to a payment plan
typically when pressed, as this is back wages, would be processed in full
I hope the answer is fast, clear and helpful.
If so kindly click accept
