  • working alot of hours

    hi i work for a daycare center, they schedule everyone according to the counts of kids we have for the day in the toddler rooms. my question is if we are scheduled for ten hour shifts is it legal for us not receive any breaks during the day and take one and half hour lunches without getting paid for them because after you are hired they tell you that they do not pay for overtime? this is in the state of michigan. thanks jenn

    Michigan law does not require that you get a break. I'm assuming that you are given 1 1/2 hour lunch breaks so you WON'T hit overtime? If so, that's fine by your employer. However, if you do hit overtime as a non-exempt employee, you are entitled to your overtime pay.
