Customer Question

If an hourly non exempt employee who gets paid semi-monthly, with absence of "set" workweek, how would I calculate his overtime for the first payroll period of July? He is paid on the 15th and the last day of the month. If payday happens to fall on a Saturday or Sunday, he is paid the Friday before payday.

It looks like the employee is entitled to overtime for July 1, 2 and 15.

Please note, employees are entitled to 1 day of rest in every 7 days, but:
"Nothing in
this chapter shall be construed to prevent an accumulation of days of
rest when the nature of the employment reasonably requires that the
employee work seven or more consecutive days, if in each calendar
month the employee receives days of rest equivalent to one day's rest
in seven."
