My employer/owner of company told a foreman that if I didn't work this past Saturday I would be let go/dismissed.. However, my employer has paid me in cash the past 3 months that I have been employed . I average about 50 hours a week , or more than 40, at least..,Which means I had worked overtime hours for most of the months I been working for his company. (Mon-Saturday workweek) I had no knowledge that if my employer pays in cash that a worker(s) are still entitled overtime pay..Although I didn't know or mention it to him..Should he, as my employer have known? And if he dismisses me should I confront and tell him he owes me overtime pay, time 1/2, for all weeks I worked there? If he denies me the pay for whatever reason..Should I tell him I will retain lawyer to recoup my money owed?
