I own food service restaurant in Concord. I have few employees who work part time (on hourly basis) at the restaurant. I have question regarding Overtime.

Do I need to give over time (1.5 times) to employees worked on the national holiday (like labor day) even if they have worked less than 8 hours a day and less than 40 hours a week?
