    Not if you are a nonexempt employees, which I am assuming by your job title that you are. If your employer requires you to come in at 7:15, then that is time is compensable, and you must be paid overtime if you work more than 40 hours in a work week. If you cannot work this out with your employer, you can file a claim for unpaid overtime with your state Dept. of Labor (most states).
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
