Overtime and Record Keeping
Employers are obligated to keep records on the hours and wages of their employees. The following records must be kept by an employer in regard to overtime and minimum wage:
- Personal information, including name, address, sex, occupation and birth date (if under 19)
- The time and day each workweek begins
- Total number of hours worked each workday and workweek
- Hourly rate for any week when overtime is worked
- Total overtime pay for the workweek
- Total wages earned during each pay period
- Payment date and period covered
If an employer fails to keep these records and is facing an overtime or minimum wage claim, he or she may not be able to dispute the number of hours worked.
