The Overtime Pay Requirements

29 CFR 778.103 - The workweek as the basis for applying section 7(a).

  • Section Number: 778.103
  • Section Name: The workweek as the basis for applying section 7(a).

    If in any workweek an employee is covered by the Act and is not 
exempt from its overtime pay requirements, the employer must total all 
the hours worked by the employee for him in that workweek (even though 
two or more unrelated job assignments may have been performed), and pay 
overtime compensation for each hour worked in excess of the maximum 
hours applicable under section 7(a) of the Act. In the case of an 
employee employed jointly by two or more employers (see part 791 of this 
chapter), all hours worked by the employee for such employers during the 
workweek must be totaled in determining the number of hours to be 
compensated in accordance with section 7(a). The principles for 
determining what hours are hours worked within the meaning of the Act 
are discussed in part 785 of this chapter.
