Re: ot pay over 7 years

If you think that you may be entitled to overtime pay (there is not enough information in your post to make that determination), you can file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor, which is responsible for enforcing the federal minimum wage/overtime wage laws. You should be able to find complaint forms on the DOL’s website.
