Can someone clear up a question for me as I can't find info anywhere on the internet. What is the 'correct' way to calculate overtime for an employee paid hourly and on a semimonthly basis in Texas?
My understanding is if there is 11 days in the pay period beginning on the 1st and ending on the 15th... paychecks issued on the 20th... that if an employee worked a total of 90 hours during those 11 working days then 88 hours would be straight time and the remaining 2 hours would be paid overtime at time and a half. We don't differentiate between 40 hour weeks because semimonthly always spans either 15 or 16 days depending on the month worked. Some pay periods have 10 working days (80 hours), some have 11 (88 hours) and some have 12 days (96 hours). During those periods any hours worked over the 80, 88 or 96 is considered overtime and paid.
Is this correct?
Is there documentation explaining this?
