Under the law, if you are required to work past 40 hours in a work week, then you must be paid OT if you are a "non-exempt" worker (that is typically someone who is paid hourly). At this point, you should file a wage claim with your state's department of labor or you (and your co-workers if applicable) should consult directly with an employment law attorney in your area, such a consultation may be for free. The fact is that you are owed OT and your employer can face severe penalties for not providing it to you.
