It is illegal under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and state laws, for an Employer to deny you the wages and overtime hours for work that you performed on behalf of an employer.
Under state and federal laws, the wage and hour laws frequently require the employer to pay twice the time and one-half owed (i.e., three times your hourly wage) as penalty. It does not matter if you are salaried or hourly, or what your job title is, or whether your employer told you that you are exempt. If your employer has not classified your job properly, and you are not qualified as an exempt employee, under federal and state wage laws you must be paid time and one-half for the overtime hours that you work.
