For non-exempt employees, overtime is computed under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), keeping in mind certain overtime rules for Federal employees. FLSA Overtime pay is determined by multiplying straight time pay of the employee by all the overtime hours worked up him/her. To this, add one-half of the hourly regular rate of pay of employee. All kinds of overtime work that is approved/ordered or suffered/permitted need to be compensated.
