Overtime Law

In New Jersey, the State Wage and Hour Law states that employees are required to receive overtime pay at a rate of time-and-a-half of their regular pay for each hour actually worked over 40 hours per week.

There are certain exceptions to this law, including salaried executives, professionals and administrators. Certain farm laborers, sales people and childcare workers are also among those exempt from the overtime law.

To be eligible for overtime pay, workers must actually work in excess of 40 hours in a seven-day week. Overtime pay for holidays and weekends is not required if those days fall within the 40-hour limit. Employees cannot waive their right to overtime pay without violating New Jersey’s Wage and Hour Law; employees can, however, be forced to work overtime provided they are paid extra for every hour over 40 hours per week.

Employers that fail to pay overtime to their qualified employees are subject to fines and/or administrative penalties.

Because there are exceptions to the State’s overtime payment law, you may need to utilize the services of an experienced employment attorney. If you believe you have been denied overtime payments, contact Rotolo Karch Law for advice. Protect your rights. Call Rotolo Karch Law today.

The absolute BEST!!! I have a family of attorneys but needed someone local. Victor was recommended to me and words cannot describe how pleased I was with his firm. The outstanding service and attention each member of his staff gave to me surpassed any and all expectations. Victor surrounds himself with a hardworking team that he leads. I felt it was money spent wisely. I will continue to recommend Victor and his associates.

I am an attorney and have practiced law for 26 years. I hired Vic to handle a very difficult family matter because I do not handle family law. Vic was extremely competent and obtained a result far beyond my expectations. Without his counsel my son's and family's life would have been changed forever. Thank you Vic for your good lawyering. I very much appreciate the personal attention and time dedicated to this matter. I highly recommend Vic.

We recently had a situation where we needed to hire an attorney. We selected Rotolo Law Firm and I can honestly say that we were above and beyond satisfied with Vic and his team. We would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone should the need arise. We blindly picked the firm out of the phone book because I liked his ad. Now I believe that God was pointing us in the right direction. Thank you Vic and the Rotolo Law Firm for being there for us in our time of need.

Victor's expertise, due diligence, and empathy for his client made my first experience with the law (and last) a non-stressful one. Before the case, I did my research and looked over about 20 lawyers before choosing Victor. All my sources pointed to him as the best and they weren't off even a bit. Victor treated my case like it was his own and kept me up to date with all my appointments, breakthroughs in the case, and guided me step through step in a process that I never thought that I had to come to endure. If Victor's not available Susy will go out of her way to take care you. The productivity and efficiency in that office is second to none. Thank you Victor!
