I agree with you 100% How do you explain this to
the judge though? Legally, aren't those OT hours supposed to be rewarded at 1.5X
the employees base rate?

Subject: RE: Job Opportunity - OT
have always been of the similar mindset. I never felt the need to get
"overtime" pay (i.e. one and half pay) for overtime, but I did expect to get
paid for the hours that I worked. Now, having said that, I am careful to
keep in mind that if I work 8 to 5 for 5 days a week, I might not
realistically being doing a full 40 hours due to inefficiencies/water cooler
talk, etc. As such, I tend to consider it reasonable for an employer to
expect me to do some "overtime" (I am talking a couple hours a week maybe) for
my 40 hour salary. I don't consider it reasonable for an employer to
expect me to work 50+ hours or so for a 40 hour salary...unless I am
compensated in some other manner (a REAL bonus or REAL comp time...i.e. comp
time that I am able to use not that get shoved to the side due to work
load). After all, I am pretty sure that my employers expected their
clients to pay them for the work that they do.
I also work at a small firm that
does not pay an overtime rate for overtime, but I am paid hourly for all of
my hours worked. I would say about 75% of the guys I went to school
with are on salary and work roughly the same amount of hours a week as I
do. So when someone asks me if I am upset that I don?t get an overtime
rate of pay, I tell them I am fine with it because unlike my friends I went
to school with, I get paid for all of my hours worked.
