Overtime Laws in New York
Any employee who is not exempt must receive overtime pay for all time worked after 40 hours in one workweek. The overtime rate is set at 1.5 times the employee’s regular rate of pay. Employers may not substitute time off or other benefits for the wages that are owed for overtime.
There is often much confusion over who is entitled to overtime. If you earn less than $455 per week or $23,660 per year, you automatically qualify for overtime pay. Employees who earn more than this amount may be exempt from overtime requirements if they are compensated on a salary basis and if their job falls under a certain category.
Categories of work that are exempt from overtime pay include:
- Creative professionals
- Learned professionals
- Computer employees
- Outside sales employees
