What Are The Labor Rights of Administrative Staff?

Like all employees covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), administrative employees are entitled to overtime pay. This is the case when they work over 40 hours in a workweek. Therefore, any additional hours worked beyond the standard 40-hour workweek should be compensated at a rate of at least one and a half times the regular pay rate. However, many administrative personnel may not be aware of their rights under the FLSA and may not receive the overtime pay they are entitled to. Most commonly, administrative staff who’ve worked overtime find themselves misclassified as salaried employees and receive no overtime pay regardless of the number of hours they worked that week.

Overtime Violations

Administrative personnel often face unique challenges when it comes to receiving proper compensation. Long hours, demanding workloads, and the expectation of being always available can make it difficult for administrative professionals to maintain a healthy work-life balance and ensure they are being paid fairly for their time. Additionally, some employers may misclassify administrative personnel as exempt from overtime pay. Here are some examples of qualifying overtime: 

  • Working beyond forty hours per week to meet deadlines or complete projects.
  • Responding to work-related emails or messages outside of normal working hours.
  • Attending meetings or conferences outside of scheduled work hours.
  • Completing tasks remotely or while on-call.
  • Assisting with special events or projects that require additional time and effort.
  • Providing support during busy periods or peak seasons.
  • Covering for absent colleagues or taking on extra responsibilities temporarily.
  • Participating in training sessions or professional development activities outside of regular working hours.

Fight for Your Unpaid Overtime

In each of these scenarios, administrative staff who are properly classified may find themselves working overtime without receiving proper compensation. It’s essential for employees to understand their rights under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and seek assistance from experienced wage lawyers if they believe their overtime rights have been violated.
