Lexington Overtime Law Attorney

South Carolina Unpaid Wages Attorney

Overtime law in South Carolina is based on the Fair Labor Standards Act., This law requires that employers pay time and a half the normal rate for all hours in excess of 40 in a given week. There are only limited exceptions to the overtime pay requirement for hourly employees including outside sales and certain information technology professionals. Overtime is not automatically earned for working weekends, holidays or more than 8 hours in a given day.

Most Workers are Eligible for Overtime

Almost all employees are eligible to receive overtime pay when due. This includes workers in motels, factories, construction, restaurants, retail, warehouses, and service industries.

Some employers either do not understand or choose to ignore the law. Potential overtime law violations include requirements to clock out and continue working, payment of excess time in cash, or "comp" time. Regardless of what your employer says if you are eligible then your employer must pay you earned overtime.

Unpaid overtime violations may result in the employer facing substantial penalties. This may include a requirement to pay all overtime due to be paid along with attorney's fees and costs. If you believe that your employer has refused to pay you overtime in accordance with the law you are invited to contact our office for a no-cost case screening.
