The law says if you work 7 consecutive days then the 7th day is all overtime. What if you work 38 consecutive days? Would that make every day past the first 6 all overtime hours?
"The law says if you work 7 consecutive days then the 7th day is all overtime." That is not the law in WA. For example, if you work 2 hours a day, you never have any overtime.
The work week resets every 7 calendar days.
The law in WA is that hours worked that are over 40 hours in a work week is paid as overtime for workers eligible for overtime paid. Not everyone is entitled to be paid overtime.
