For those with a legal disability, you might assume that overtime hours are outlawed.
However, the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) allows the employee to opt-in to overtime as long as the job is “light-duty,” which means that it is not particularly physically taxing.
A 2019 update to the FLSA specifically exempts white collar jobs, where the worker’s duties fall into an executive, administrative, or professional capacity.
There are also special rules for volunteers, independent contractors, and seasonal workers.
There is an important exception to this rule, though.
In fact, some jobs require that an employee show up for overtime when directed to so, with refusal being a fireable offense.Mandated reporters may include paid or unpaid people who have assumed full or intermittent responsibility for the care of a child, dependent adult, or elder.which helped doctors identify child abuse, its effects, and the need to report serious physical abuse to legal authorities.If you are a member of a union, overtime is dictated by the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) negotiated between the employer and union officials.Just like with individual employment, a CBA is a contractual agreement, and if the employer violates it they are subject to a civil suit.
