Define overtime. What does overtime pay mean?
The amount of time spent working past the regular working day is known as overtime. The word is also applied to the compensation for this period of extra time.
Employees covered by the Act must receive overtime compensation, unless they are exempt, at an overtime rate that is at least time and a half their usual rates of pay for hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek.
Solution Explained:
Given,
Normal rate = \$12 per hour
Overtime rate = 1.5 times more than the normal rate per hour
= (15 X 12) / 10 = \$18 per hour
First we will see the normal total pay for 40 hours
= 40 X 12 = \$480
The overtime pay = 7 X 18 = \$126
Therefore, the pay for 47 hours is = 126 + 480 = \$606
