    I work for a small local business in Texas and am an hourly employee. This week I wasn’t paid time and a half for the 7 hours of overtime I worked. When I asked about it I was told I had to fill out a form applying for overtime pay if I wanted to receive overtime pay. I was told my boss legally could not pay me due to the fact I had not filled out this form that looks like a word document someone threw together last minute. They did not pay anyone in my department and I’ve heard sketchy things about the way they operate from past employees. Has anyone heard of this mythical overtime authorization form law or are they just screwing me and my coworkers over?
