You deserve to be paid legally for the hours you work, including any overtime hours. Our team of experienced wage lawyers for security workers is here to help you fight for your rights. At Georgia Wage Lawyers, we work tirelessly on overtime claims on your behalf. Let us ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Security Guards and Overtime 

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), security workers are entitled to overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours in a workweek. This means that 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 worker’s regular rate of pay. However, some security workers may not be aware of their rights under the FLSA or may face challenges in enforcing those rights. 

Typical Overtime Disputes 

Overtime disputes can significantly impact security guards. Here are some common overtime disputes that may affect these employees:

  • Unpaid Overtime: They may work beyond the forty-hour workweek without receiving overtime pay, as required by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
  • Misclassification: Also, employers commonly misclassify security personnel as independent contractors or exempt employees to avoid paying overtime wages.
  • Off-the-Clock Work: Additionally, employers may require them to perform tasks before or after their scheduled shifts without compensating them for this additional time.
  • Improper Meal Break Deductions: Employers may deduct a half hour or more each day from time worked for meal breaks which were not taken.
  • Compensatory Time Off: Lastly, some employers may offer compensatory time off instead of overtime pay, which does not comply with FLSA regulations.
