Tennessee Overtime laws & compensation compliance analysis

Tennessee Overtime: What you need to know

Tennessee has no overtime law of its own. Consequently, all overtime questions are governed by federal law.
Tennessee’s Wage Regulations Act now requires that employees bring their complaints to the state Department of Labor, rather than initiating a civil court proceeding. Initiating a complaint in a civil court proceeding was previously allowed.
