According to New York law, when you’re hired, your employer is required to give you a written notice that includes information about your pay rate, your pay day, and your overtime pay rate (if applicable). You must provide your employer with a written acknowledgement that you received this information.
Generally speaking, non-exempt employees must be paid 1-1/2 times their regular pay for every hour worked over 40 hours during a workweek. For live-in domestic workers, overtime kicks in after 44 hours during a workweek. Keep in mind that overtime pay isn’t required if you work more than eight hours in a single day; it is only applicable after 40 hours (or 44 in the case of live-in domestic workers) per week.
