Generally, an employer must pay their employee at least a minimum wage, the wage agreed upon in their employment agreement, and overtime wages, if the rules regarding overtime apply to the employee. This is a short answer to your question, but in your case, if your employer has failed to comply with making payment to you as consistent with your employment agreement and under the law, then you could file a complaint with the US or your state Dept. of Labor.
If you have a complaint regarding overtime, you can actually just click here and follow the rules on how to file a complaint.
