> Overtime pay that is *required* by an employer...

I think the issue is not with "overtime," as it is legally and classically
defined. Rather, it's with being paid for the hours worked, period. If a
particularly day's work requires one to stay on for an hour or less, who's
to quibble? Yet, if an employer expects/requires/demands one work 10 or more
hours per week and does not compensate for that effort...well, that's an
issue.

I'm a contractor and my contracts--those that are not fixed-fee--require
that I will be paid for each hour worked and billed. This issue doesn't deal
with contractors; it's with employees and employers.

Cheers,
