Ask SCORE

          I’m confused about the rules for paying employees overtime. Can you explain them to me? 

         Should you be paying overtime to your employees? The answer is: it depends.

          Under the U.S. Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employers are required to pay overtime to most hourly employees who work more than 40 hours a week for businesses that take in more than $500,000 a year in revenue.
