New York Overtime Law

If you work in New York, don’t let your employer take advantage of you.

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.
