An attorney-reviewed digital form to document employee requests for overtime and approve or deny such requests. 

Overtime Request and Approval Form - Digital

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), non-exempt employees must receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 in a workweek. The payment must be at a rate not less than time and one-half their regular rates of pay. While state overtime requirements vary, several states also require overtime pay for hours worked over 8 in a workday. Due to the increased wages associated with overtime, many employers elect to establish a process for an employee to formally request a longer work shift that would result in overtime pay. After all, unauthorized overtime work can result in unanticipated payroll expenses. However, using a print or digital form to document these requests allows employers to implement an approval process while also complying with wage & hour recordkeeping requirements. 

Our digital, attorney-reviewed Overtime Request and Approval Form is designed to help employers manage the process of employees requesting overtime. The form allows the employee to request longer work shifts on specific days, and includes space for the employee’s manager to formally approve or deny the request. Additionally, implementing this form into your business operations can ensure that employees do not work overtime without prior approval from their supervisor, manager, or HR.

  • A digital request form to establish a process for reviewing all employee requests for overtime;
  • Attorney-reviewed to ensure compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and/or state wage & hour laws;
