    Answered . You probably are entitled to overtime, assuming that the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) covers either you or your employer. If you have a valid overtime claim, then you could recover the unpaid overtime, plus an equal amount as liquidated damages. You could also recover your attorneys' fees and litigation costs. I would encourage you to consult with an employment attorney.
