In the state of Michigan, overtime laws designed to protect workers mandate that employees must be paid 1.5 times their normal hourly rate (“time-and-a-half”) for every hour that exceeds a 40-hour work week. The state minimum wage in Michigan is $7.40 per hour, which makes the minimum wage for overtime hours $11.10 per hour. Unfortunately, many employees in Michigan don’t know enough about state overtime laws to know when they have been illegally denied overtime pay. If you suspect that you are owed overtime pay you did not receive, contact a national employment lawyer at Phillips Dayes Law Firm for more information.
