Installation and service technicians in the United States often perform significant work activities outside of their normal working hours. In many cases, these employees may not necessarily expect to be compensated for this work by their employers.
However, any work that is performed by an employee outside of the normal workings hours, and which an employer is aware of, requires compensation under the law, provided the employee is not overtime exempt.
If you are an installation or service technician and you believe that your employer has unfairly denied you overtime pay for the work you have performed, you do have legal options available to you. With the help of an experienced legal professional, you may be able to file a strong claim for the wages you have worked so hard to earned.
TYPES OF WORK REQUIRING OVERTIME PAY
Employers may have to provide overtime pay to installation and service technicians who perform significant job activities in any of the following circumstances:
- Before their shift has officially begun
- During unpaid lunch breaks
- After the shift is over
- Outside of the work environment
Workers who engage in work activities in these settings may be entitled to seek compensation if they have not been paid overtime wages for their efforts.
