Overtime for working two locations

I have an employye that was looking for more hours. My comapny owns 3 different locations. In the past if associates worked at multiple locations, they recieved multiple checks. If said employee were to work 30 hours at each location, do we have to pay overtime?

Yes, you absolutely have to pay overtime to any employee who works more than 40 hours per week for your company, regardless of the location. (In the past, when you issued multiple checks all at straight time, you were in violation of the federal FLSA, the overtime law.)

In 2007 a barbeque restaurant chain in Nebraska ended up paying more than $6 million to a dozen servers, for exactly this reason. The employees were working 35 hours at each of two restaurants and had not been paid overtime. They were sued by the U.S. Department of Labor. Do not let this happen to you.
