Article Tools

State overtime pay laws can be more stringent than the federal rule for overtime pay. If this is the case for your state, you must comply with the state law requirements.

States have laws pertaining to overtime pay, and the general rules and exemptions can differ from the federal overtime pay rules.

If your state's law is more inclusive or more generous regarding overtime pay, you must follow that law, even though you will surpass the minimum compliance requirements of the federal law.

On the other hand, if the federal law is more demanding than your state's law, and you are subject to the federal law, you must meet the federal minimum, even though your state requires less to be in compliance.
