Are You Being Paid For Overtime?
Unless an employer has specifically exempted an employee from overtime laws, the employer must pay overtime for hours worked in excess of 40 per week. Despite this requirement, some West Virginia employers fail to follow these rules, or else improperly claim that employees are exempt when they are actually subject to those rules.

Have You Been Unfairly Denied Overtime?
You may be entitled to overtime pay if you are classified as nonexempt and one or more of the following conditions applies:
- You work more than 40 hours in a week.
- Your employer forces you to work through lunch breaks.
- Your employer does not provide regular pay for time spent in training, setting up equipment in preparation for work or cleanup time.
- Your employer offers compensatory time off in a subsequent pay period for hours in excess of 40 per week.
- Your employer averages multiple weeks to bring the weekly total under 40 hours.
Some people classified as exempt or considered contractors may actually be covered by wage and hour laws.
You may be entitled to thousands of dollars in compensation that has been denied to you in violation of the law. In a free consultation, one of our Huntington unpaid overtime claims lawyers can review your case and explain your legal options.
