Under section 35 of the Act, an employer must pay an employee overtime wages “if the employer requires, or directly or indirectly allows” the employee to work more than eight hours per day or 40 hours in a week. If the employee does work more than eight hours in a day, she is entitled to overtime wages of one and one-half times her normal hourly wage for each additional hour over eight. The same applies for each additional hour worked beyond 40 in a week. Further, if the employee works more than 12 hours in a day, she is entitled to double her normal hourly wage for each additional hour beyond 12.
