  • Forced to work overtime

    The issue of paralegal overtime is usually decided on a case by case basis - best thing to do is to contact your local DOL and get a ruling from them. 

    The reason behind this is because paralegal overtime wages are based on your education level. The more advanced your degree, and the better your education in the field, the less likely you are to be entitled to overtime wages. A more intern-like level would definitely see overtime, however.
