This issue is often referred to as forced or mandatory overtime. The termination of work can be challenged if the requested overtime is unpaid, in violation of contract or regulations, or poses a safety or health risk.

The FLSA regulations state that overtime hours must be paid at one and one-half times the regular rates. However, employers do not have to pay overtime to exempt employees.
