  • IL. moving company not paying o.t. - is this legal?

    I have been w/my current employer for many yrs. & never gotten any overtime pay (worked up to 88 hrs. per week) - is this legal for them not to have to pay overtime?

    That depends.

    What kind of work do you do, and in what state do you work?

    Why have you continued to work for so long and not ask about the overtime pay before?

      Generally speaking yes, it is legal.
      Drivers, driver's helpers, loaders and mechanics are exempt from the overtime pay provisions of the FLSA if employed by a motor carrier, and if the employee's duties affect the safety of operation of the vehicles in transportation of passengers or property in interstate or foreign commerce

      I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.

      Some days it is just not worth chewing through the restraints to face life.

        State of IL., moving furniture & sometimes driving the truck - my gf has said there's a state statute on this but didn't elaborate for me. Came here to see if filing for past o.t. is an option I may have, or not -

          It's possible.

          Follow this link to the Illinois Fair Labor Standards website and read up on it. If you feel that a complaint is warranted, then you can file one on the website as well.
