Occupational and Physical Therapist May be Entitled to Overtime!

Some employers do not pay Occupational and Physical Therapist overtime when they work in excess of 40 hours in a work week. You may  be entitled to overtime pay if you work more than 40 hours in a work week and you:

  • Are paid on a “Fee Basis,” but paid extra for working at night, on the weekends, or if the visits take a long period of time.
  • Your employer pays you on a salary basis but decreases your pay when you work less than 40 hours.
  • You are paid on an hourly basis.
  • You are not allowed to report all of your time worked.
  • You do work that a non-OT or non-PT could do.

You may file a claim for unpaid overtime going back as far as 3 years and you do not have to still work for the employer.
