  • Michigan Alternitive ways to pay over time

    Ok every one I am a college student writing a paper on "alternative ways to pay overtime"

    I came across this site and found if very interesting. I have bookmarked it for future use. Back to my paper. I am looking for laws on how you can and can not pay over time pay in MI and the alternatives ways that it can be paid out?? I know of being in the building trades or OT pay would be held and payed out over winter months when we were laid off or had short pay as it is slow working up here in the winter. Weather this is legal or not I am not sure. I am holding a "B" in this class and want to push it over to an "A" so any help and/or personal experiences would be very welcome. Thank you every one for any and all help that you offer and give.

    We normally don't do homework, but you were honest in admitting that's what you were doing, and the Steelers aren't playing today (I now live in PA, don't let the "MD" in my moniker fool you), so in this one case, I don't mind helping. I will PM you with my qualifications.

    Although there are different ways of calculating overtime premiums (the "half-time" portion of time-and-a-half), and there are a number of exceptions to whether overtime pay is even required or not, once it is determined that the overtime IS, in fact, due, there are really no "alternatives", except in the public sector.

    You mention construction and "holding overtime pay" for payment later. I can guarantee you that is an illegal practice in private industry.

    Let's start here. Are you familiar with the Fair Labor Standards Act? And have you been on the state Dept. of Labor web site?

      I have been to or local MI state sites and have read up on it and that is were I am getting confused as "holding pay" as in paying at 1.5 as in comp time? Now as I understand it that is legal? That is more along of the lines I meant by holding OT pay? Hope that is clearer? I do not fully understand this but as I was told(I did not work for this co) They paid there OT as comp time over the winter as such so they were not considered LO and lose there health benefits and have to be on unemployment?

      I have ran into a lot of PA people that are neg LOL I am thinking you can change that out look for me.

        Comp time is NOT allowed in the private sector. It IS allowed in the public sector, subject to some limitations.

        The operative word is PAY.

          There also might be something here, if you can find the "laws" site.

          This article also may (or may not) be of interest.
