Maybe. Many employers try to classify their employees as subcontractors so the company doesn’t have to pay workers’ compensation or overtime wages. This is illegal. So while true subcontractors are not entitled to receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40, misclassified employees ARE entitled to overtime pay if they work more than 40 hours in a week. Regardless of what the employer says, employees should talk to an employment lawyer if they have questions about wages, overtime pay, or their classification as a subcontractor.
