The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets the minimum standards for overtime pay. Many states have their own overtime pay laws but if those laws are less protective of employees than the FLSA, the FLSA overtime standards apply in the state.

Some types of workers are exempt from the FLSA overtime pay laws, although they may be covered by state laws, which vary from state to state. To find out what your state's rules are for overtime wage pay eligibility and amount, select it from the list below.
