Overtime compensation; penalties. Requires an employer to compensate its employees who are entitled to overtime compensation under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act at a rate (i) not less than one and one-half times the employee's regular rate of pay for any hours worked in excess of 40 hours in any one workweek and (ii) not less than twice the employee's regular rate of pay for (a) any hours worked in excess of 12 hours in one workday and (b) any hours worked on the seventh day of work in any workweek to the extent that the hours worked on such day exceed 40 hours worked in such week. The sanctions for an employer's failure to pay such overtime wages, including civil and criminal penalties, are the same as currently provided for failing to pay wages generally.
