There is no limit under Kentucky law on the number of hours that an employee can be made to work as mandatory overtime.  However, unless the employee is exempt from overtime pay requirements, he or she must be paid at an overtime wage rate of time and a half their regular hourly wage rate for all time worked in a work week greater than 40 hours.
