Right now, if a non-exempt employee works more than 40 hours in a week (or more than eight hours in one day, in California) you have to pay them time-and-a-half for the extra hours.
The employee and manager must agree before the work is performed and the employee must have worked at least 1000 hours before they are eligible for comp time, so the employer and employee have an established relationship.
Not every jurisdiction limits such hours to a specific number.
There are no specific limits on maximum hours of work in British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador or the Yukon.
Does the employer have the right to determine how many hours employees will work or request mandatory overtime?
Are there thresholds past which employees can’t be made to work, with or without their consent?
Right now, exempt employees have more opportunities for flexibility than hourly paid employees, but this bill could change that.
