Employees who work both on-site and at home. Under both federal and Texas law, an employer can have employees perform additional work from home and pay them on a piece-rate basis if that work earns them at least minimum wage. If an employee is working two separate jobs at different rates for the same employer, overtime is owed if the employee works a combined total of more than 40 hours in a workweek. The overtime should be calculated based on a regular rate of pay that is the weighted average of the rates for each job.
For example, if an employee works 30 hours at $10 per hour and 20 hours at $8.00 per hour, the weighted average is $9.20 (30 hours x $10 per hours + 20 hours x $8 per hour ÷ 50 hours). The overtime pay is $46 (1/2 of $9.20 per hour x 10 hours).
