If you’re non-exempt, in Florida you need to be paid overtime for any hours over 40 that you work in a week. If you’re exempt from overtime pay in Florida, you might not not be exempt in California.

Ask A Manager

This up to your own internal policy, and different companies do it differently. I work in Florida. Unfortunately, Florida isn’t one of them. Florida has no state law on deductions, meaning that employers can generally charge you for mistakes as long as it doesn’t reduce your pay below minimum wage. Either way, it’s a terrible, unfair, absurd policy, and I urge you and your coworkers to push back against it as a group, citing Pennsylvania law.
