Even in the 21st century there are many misconceptions about what is actually required to pay employees correctly under federal and state wage and hour laws. There are some who absolutely know that it is illegal to force exempt employees to record their time (it is not) or that if you pay an employee for a holiday it must be included in the calculation for overtime under the law (it does not). Others are convinced that if they have a firm policy in place that states emphatically that overtime must be approved in advance or it will not be paid is perfectly legal not to pay the overtime (it is not).
