The FLSA governs the proper way for companies to pay their workers overtime – defined as any time worked over 40 hours in a week. Overtime must be paid at a rate of at least time-and-a-half a workers' regular pay, and although exemptions apply (for managerial positions, for example), most employees are entitled to overtime pay.
