More details to this question:
I also noticed on my paystub I worked over 90 hours in a work pay period and they did not give me overtime at all. My PTO was at a different rate than I normally make for my regular shift. Is that illegal?

Dear Ciara,

 

Unless you are exempt from the overtime requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), your employer is required to pay you 1.5 times your regular hourly rate for any hours over 40 that you work in a specific week.  If you have specific questions, you can call me and I will do my best to answer them.

 

Best,
