I work 5 days a week, and get paid every 2 weeks. Now, when i work over 40 hrs. in a week, shouuldn't i receive overtime for that week? My co. just adds everything together for the 2 weeks. What so you think about this? is this common?
we get time and a half for anything over forty hours in a week. i just pulled 11 twelve hour shifts in a row with x mas included. my ot pay was nice--not to mention my bonus check i got on the same day for twelve years of service.

It all depends on the facility, some pay overtime after 8 hrs, most by the week anything over 40 hrs, never heard of over 80 hrs. The weasels what will they try next? deb

It depends upon how they have set up their payroll. It can be set up either weekly or biweekly. If the payroll is weekly then everything over 40 is OT, if a biweekly payroll period (not just get paid every 2 weeks) then it is over 80 or more then 8 hrs /day.
Double check with Federal wage an hour but to my memory it is legal

Where I work <aka "Shelbyland"> OT is anything over 8 hrs per day or 80 hours per pay period. In other words , say i don't punch out til midnight on night.. that's OT. If I pull an extra shift on top of scheduled shifts, that's OT <I am scheduld 80 hrs/pay period> If I work 4 days one week, and 6 the next, it's all straight time cuz it's only 80 hours
