Fighting for Fair Pay

Car Mechanics

Car mechanics are frequently paid either a salary or an hourly rate. There is no overtime exemption for auto mechanics outside of a dealership and so mechanics must be paid time and one half for all hours over forty in a work week. Some auto dealership mechanics may be exempt, however, and the determination of exemptions at a dealership requires careful review with an attorney.
