I work at a health club, and I think they are screwing me out of time and a half when I work overtime. They have a very strange way of doing their pay and I am just unsure if there is a loophole in the labor laws that they are exploiting that I'm not aware of. I'll try to explain their methods the best I can. I will use last month for the example. We get paid on a bimonthly period. The pay period runs from the 1st of the month to the 15th of the month, then from the 16th to the 30th (or 31st). Then, we receive our checks on the 5th of every month and the 20th of every month. I work Monday through Friday, every day of the week. Last month, I worked a total of 12 days in the second pay period (July 16th - July 31st). They claim that since there are 12 days in this period, and assuming I work 8 hours a day, they claim that anything over 96 hours in this period is overtime. (Number of days worked in a pay period times 8 hours a day, 12 days at 8 hours a day = 96 total hours) So, I worked 102 total hours in this pay period, and only got paid for 6 hours of overtime!!!! Is this even legal? I have done some researching on labor laws, federal and state, and both say the same thing. Anything, ANYTHING, over 40 hours per week is mandatory time and a half. Is there some loophole they are exploiting?
