Benore Logistic Systems, Inc.
Federal law requires employers to pay overtime wages for any work hours over 40 in a week even if you are paid by salary and even if you were told that you are not eligible to get overtime pay. An employer can legally not pay you overtime only if you are exempted from the law.
