Using Overtime Wages to Pay for Work-Related Injuries

There are federal regulations that mandate what overtime work is and how employees should be properly compensated. However, in addition to some employers violating these regulations, causing deserving employees to be denied their fair overtime pay, working overtime can also be damaging for workers physically.

Fortunately, when you are owed overtime pay, you do have legal options available to you to get the wages you are owed.

Work Injuries and Overtime Pay

Many people work overtime to earn more money. Unfortunately, working extra hours can lead to certain injuries, such as:

  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Lifting injuries
  • Eye, neck, or back strain
  • Fatigue

These conditions can mean that you need additional money to pay the medical bills accrued in treating your injury or illness. Sadly, despite the injuries or strains that you might be facing after working overtime, your employer might fail to compensate you according to federal regulations; however, you can hold your employer accountable for this pay.
