    In ALL states, overtime pay is due if you actually work in excess of 40 hours in a workweek. Some states require daily overtime or double-time under certain conditions, but New Jersey is not one of those states.

    I would note that the definition of what the workweek IS, however, is the 168 consecutive-hour period, which must begin on a date/time certain, is defined by the employer. And this is true no matter on what frequency you are paid; weekly, biweekly, or semi-monthly. It does not necessarily have to coincide with your particular work schedule.
