        Union.

        Okay, so does the CBA (union contract) require OT after eight hours?

        Federal and Illinois laws don't require that.

        You get OT only if you work more than 40 hours in a work week, unless your CBA says otherwise.

            Then tell the union about the "church work" and let them handle it.

            Wow... I haven't heard that term in 15 years.....
            Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

                Back in the day, it was the way bosses told their employees to not only expect not to be paid for overtime but to feel better about doing it.

                Because the employer was going to give the money normally paid to the workers to the church to satisfy their tithe.

                Of course, you can't do that anymore - by law - and I can't really believe anyone would try to make that fly anymore.
