If you are employed as an hourly paid table games supervisor and worked more than 40 hours in a workweek, you may not have been properly compensated for all your overtime hours. If so, you may have a claim against your employer for back wages, penalties, and interest.
Federal and Nevada state law mandate that all hourly non-exempt employees must be paid at 1.5 times their regular hourly rate of pay for all hours they work in excess 40 in a workweek. Many casino table games supervisors are compensated on an hourly basis. As a result, these hourly paid table games supervisors must be paid overtime pay for all hours they work over 40 hours in a workweek.
Here’s an example:
Fred worked as an hourly paid table games supervisor at Acme Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. He worked 52 hours in a single work week. He is normally paid $40/hr. His paycheck for that one week was $2,080 (52 hours x $40), but it should have been $1,600 regular rate pay (40 hours x $40) PLUS $720 in overtime pay (12 hours x $60), which equals $2320!
By failing to pay Fred his overtime hours at 1.5 times his regular rate of pay, Acme shorted Fred $240 a week. Over the course of the three year time limit for recovering back wages, Fred could be entitled to thousands of dollars of back pay, penalties, and interest.
