What is the name of the law the requires employers to pay time and a half for New Year’s Day?

I was told my boss is not intending on paying us time and a half for working New Year’s Day and would like to show him a copy of the law that states he is required to. Also, does this only apply to worker’s who have worked their 40 hours, or does that not matter?

Thanks!

    Its not a law as far as I know, but anything above 40 hours IS overtime, and that IS a law

    Sorry, but there is no law that says you get time and a half for holidays.

    If you are working under a union contract, then you need to contact the union representative.

    But if you have no union contract and no person contract, then you are screwed on this.

    Federal law requires him to pay you time and a half for any time over 8 hours a day. The same law requires him to pay you time and a half for any hours over 40 hours per week. But he can make you work on weekends, evenings, nights, and holidays and as long as you are working under 8 hours a day an 40 hours a week, he does not have to pay you time and a half.

    You need to check with your Human Resource department where you work. Any “laws” dealing with this would be written by the company you work for and only pertain to that company (typically known as “company policy”).
