I'm W-2, work as an administrative billing for a medical company. If I work over 40 hours per week shouldn't I be paid overtime?

I'm not salary. I'm paid hourly.

If you are paid hourly (i.e., based on the quantity of time worked), then yes, you should be paid overtime if you work over 40 hours in a workweek and/or over 8 hours in a workday. If you think your employer is violating California's overtime laws, speak with an experienced California employment attorney.

Good luck to you.

Hourly workers must always be paid overtime (there are some very small possible exceptions, perhaps for computer programmers, doctors, lawyers, those earning over $100,000 a year, that clearly would not apply to you). Feel free to visit my website overtimelaw dot com or drop me an email at wagelaw at hotmail.com or call my office for confidential, no cost, consult via email or phone.
