How much overtime pay am I entitled to?

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires a rate of not less than one and one-half times an employee’s regular rate of pay after 40 hours of work in a workweek. However, there are some exceptions to the 40 hours per week standard, such as rates for police officers, firefighters, and to employees of hospitals and nursing homes.
