Salaried employees, do you get overtime pay?
My company is a multibillion multinational giant, in my department, there are times when people work until 1am-2am for a week straight, with coming in on Saturday/Sunday as well once a month. Essentially, there is a week where you are putting in 100hrs once a month.
Now the work doesn't have to be condensed to this point, however our managers look good to the CEO for being able to do something that took let's say 7 days before, in 2 days now.
From the beginning of our department (a few years back) efficiency has dramatically improved, from 7 days to 3 days, however it's tapered off now as it's very difficult to show more improvement results unless you have people working from 8am until 2am. This way what we did in 3 days can now be done in 2 for example.
Back to the point, the people putting in these hours aren't getting overtime and are paid as everyone else in the department, are companies with salaried employees obliged to pay overtime, how does it work, and what can be done?
