The following industries are some of the most at-risk for violating overtime laws:

  • Banking

Some of the most common positions that routinely violate overtime laws include the following:

  • Business sales consultants
  • Cable technicians
  • Call center and customer service representatives
  • Case managers
  • Delivery drivers

Federal laws mandate that employees who work overtime in excess of 40 hours a week must be paid for doing so unless they are exempt. In an effort to escape the overtime laws, employers often falsely categorize workers as exempt.

If you have been unfairly denied overtime pay, contact an experienced wage and hour attorney to discuss your claim. You may be eligible for financial damages, back pay and reinstatement of you job, should your employer attempt to retaliate.
