    Is there any documentation that you did work those hours? Witnesses and such? Is the day care actually LEGAL? (licensed and stuff?) If she's operating illegally, she ain't gonna care about paying you overtime. She already broke a law, why not another few? However, contact "Legal Aid Society" in your area. They go after bosses who short-change workers like your boss did to you.

    • In a job like you desribe, you aren't likely to be exempt from OT pay unless you are in management. . She must pay you for all hours you work, and pay time and a half for hours over 40 in a week. She can just not allow you to work OT.
