Are you a truck driver or do you drive some other vehicle as part of your job duties? Previously, drivers were generally not covered by the overtime pay laws. On August 10, 2005, Congress changed the overtime law for drivers of vehicles with a Vehicle Gross Weight Rating of 10,000 pounds or less. Thanks to these changes, these drivers are now covered by the federal overtime law. This change in the law will have a very significant impact for several route delivery drivers, including:
- Commercial food delivery driver.
- Newspaper route drivers.
- Repair persons who carry parts that originated out of state.
Please contact Werman Salas P.C., if you drive a truck that weighs less than 10,000 lbs and are not paid overtime pay.
