Overcoming Employer Prohibitions On Overtime Or Taking Work Home

Many company handbooks state that work may not be taken home and performed or overtime authorized absent written permission from management and they use these rules to decline payment of overtime where no written authorization was obtained. However, these policies may be trumped where the employer knows -- or had reason to know -- that work from home or overtime work was being performed -- and took no steps to stop it. This may especially be the case where the employer imposes unreasonable deadlines on employees.

If you have been denied overtime pay in circumstances where you believe your employer knew or should have known you would be required to work overtime to get the job done, you may be entitled to financial compensation and should call the employment lawyers of Alan Lescht and Associates, PC, for a free consultation.
