Legal Answers
110 Questions Answered

Q. Hi I have been working for a temp agency since December 2019. I am working at a retail store in Massachusetts.
A: Federal law only requires that you be paid time and a half for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek (regardless of which days you work). While your employer may offer time and a half or increased pay on weekends as an incentive to work these days, they are not required to do so.
Q. Would my boss be pretextually firing me?
A: If your boss fires you, demotes you in either pay or job responsibilities, or refuses to allow you to return to work following a medical leave, then you may have a claim for pregnancy discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The close time proximity between notifying your boss of your need for doctor visits related to your pregnancy and the increased scrutiny over your work performance can help establish that your boss is taking these actions against you due to your pregnancy and need for medical care.
Q. If I am required to sleep at work for a "sleep shift" is it considered hours worked?
A: Assuming you work less than 24 hours per day during your sleep shifts (i.e. normal shift + sleep shift = less than 24 hours total), then your employer must abide by the minimum wage and overtime requirements of the FLSA. The federal and Utah minimum wage is $7.25 per hour, so your pay for the sleep shift doesn't violate the FLSA's minimum wage provision ($75 / 9.25 hours = 8.11 per hour). However, your hours worked during your sleep shift need to be counted for purposes of determining both your overtime rate and how many overtime hours you work during a 7-day workweek.
