Who Is Entitled to Overtime?
Most non-exempt employees are entitled to overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours in a consecutive seven-day period. According to the New York Department of Labor, certain residential employees must receive overtime pay for all hours worked beyond 44 hours in a workweek.
What’s more, it’s important to note that while some employment positions are exempt from overtime payments under federal laws and the Fair Labor Standards Act, they may be entitled to overtime under New York State law.

Sometimes these “Jekyll and Hyde” switches occur because a superior learned something about a subordinate that then caused him or her to have a negative bias, like the employee was of a certain religion or sexual orientation. Sometimes the reason is more obvious, like a bias against people of a certain race, being male or female, a woman becoming pregnant or people with disabilities.
