  • back pay for overtime Iowa

    I was paid under the table for 8 months.

    I was a livein caregiver expected to sleep near the person for emergency and security reasons. Thru out the other hours I would do various chores while carrying a cellphone at all times to be on call.

    I was paid a set fee each week plus room and board. Subtracting 8 hours sleep, that put my hours at 16 or 112 a week. Which comes to under $3 an hour.

    Without notice, I was terminated.

    Can I demand all those actual hours on call and/or working paid?

    specifially, can i get those extra hours worked paid back either by minimum wage or overtime wage?

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
