7th Consecutive day OT

If an employee works more than 7 consecutive days do they get paid OT for every consecutive day, even if it is in the start of a new pay week? It is the same pay period but starts a new week.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage and overtime pay provisions. Unless specifically exempted, employees covered by the act must receive overtime pay for hours worked in excess of 40 in a workweek at a rate not less than time and one-half their regular rates of pay.

The act applies on a workweek basis. An employee’s workweek is a fixed and regularly recurring period of 168 hours or seven consecutive 24-hour periods. The workweek doesn’t have to coincide with the calendar week and may begin on any day and at any hour of the day.
