My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: Missouri
I work for a company where we get paid twice a month, the 7th and 22nd. Pay periods are from 1-15th, 16th-end of the month. Just trying to find some information out so I can check my paystub out on January 7th of 2010 when I get paid.
Was trying to figure out how overtime pay works when the weeks are cut off from the 15th-16th, etc. The situation is that I worked 20 hours total on the 14th and 15th. The new period starts on the 16th where I worked 48 hours from the 16th-19th, which is still in the same week. First day of week for us is Sun and goes through that next Sat for OT. I know I get the first 20 hours on the 22nd paycheck. For the 7th paycheck in Jan, will I get 40 hours straight pay and 8 hours OT pay, or do I get 20 hours straight pay and 28 hours OT? Wasn't sure how that totally worked and just wanted to know ahead of time for when I do check my paystub in January. Thanks for any help!
