The failure to pay overtime compensation to employees that have earned it is, in my experience, the most common employment law violation.  The two most common means by which employees and workers are beaten out of the overtime pay they've earned are unfounded and legally wrong claims by employers that (1) because they are paid a salary they are exempt from overtime pay requirements; and, (2) because of their job title such as account manager or team leader or shift supervisor (there are many others) they are exempt from overtime pay requirements.

Neither a salary or a job title alone indicates that an employee is exempt from overtime pay requirements. There are other factors that must also be considered.
