Vermont state overtime laws mandate that non-exempt employees must be paid at a rate of 1.5 times their regular hourly rate (“time-and-a-half”) for every hour that exceeds a 40-hour work week. This means that, since Vermont minimum hourly wage is $8.60, the minimum hourly wage for overtime hours in Vermont is $12.90. It is unfortunately common for Vermont employers to take advantage of the complexity of state overtime laws by illegally denying their workers overtime pay they have earned. The national overtime lawyers at Phillips Dayes Law Firm have provided this overview of Vermont overtime laws to help these employees understand and protect their rights.
