  • Overtime for non-flat rate automotive techs?

    I've worked at an auto repair shop for the past several years. This is a general repair/aftermarket shop and is in no way a dealership. We are all paid hourly. The employer has said he does not pay overtime. I could see that if we were paid on the flat rate system, this would be the norm. Since we are paid hourly, is this legal?

    You should have furnished the name of the state where you work.

      Apologies, I assumed I didn't need to due to this being the "Oregon labor laws" section, but yeah, it's Oregon.

      And thanks for the link. I think I've seen that before, but I'm not sure that it relates to us. We are only paid a straight hourly wage just as if working in fast food, etc.. No commission on anything whatsoever. It seems to me that we should qualify for overtime.

        I'm sorry. I didn't note the forum you posted in. It "seems" like you should be paid OT. Maybe one of the payroll people will come along & verify that.

          I'm thinking the same, but can't find a concrete answer.

            Fast food is normally subject to overtime. As are auto repair employees. Using a flat rate would not change this. Now this is per federal law (FLSA). OR is not my state and I cannot address OR specific rules (if any).
