According to Hawaii state overtime laws, all non-exempt employees are legally entitled to be paid at a rate of 1.5 times their normal hourly rate for all hours worked in excess of a 0-hour work week. Since the minimum wage in Hawaii is $7.25 per hour, this means that employees who work overtime hours must be paid a minimum of $10.88 per hour for each hour of overtime. Unfortunately, many employees in Hawaii don’t know state overtime laws well enough to be aware when they are illegally denied overtime pay. To help Hawaii workers protect their right to fair pay, the employment lawyers at Phillips Dayes Law Firm have written this page to help increase awareness of Hawaii state overtime laws.
