When I work more than 40 hours a week, my employer pays me overtime, which is great. The trouble is that I don't want to work overtime; I want to have a life and spend time with my family. But my boss says I have no choice -- I have to either work the overtime or look for another job. Is it legal to make me work overtime when I don't want to?
Also, in weeks when I do not work more than 40 hours, I do not get any overtime pay, even if my boss has forced me to work 16 hours in a shift. Am I entitled to overtime pay if I work more than eight hours in a day but less than 40 hours in a week?
