    The most common and obvious reasons would be if they were an exempt employee or were paid for piece work.or were paid on commission .

      Commission & piecework are still overtime eligible. Research - "regular rate of pay" for more details.

    Blame it on the worker for not making sure they will be paid for overtime.

    Salaried, and not hourly employee

    Salaried w-2 employees do not receive overtime. 1099 employees are self-employed, no overtime. Overtime in a day versus overtime in a weekly pay period, the overtime may not be paid for the day if week remains under 40 hours depending on US state. On a vacation, holiday, or sick day pay in a week, it can negate overtime since a person thinks the vacation day is a paid work time not working. Counting days, pay periods can still have over 40 hours in 7 days without overtime pay.

    Some is location dependent laws.

    And, assuming you mean overtime premium. All time worked is supposed to be paid, except salaried and some methods of 1099 setups.

    In comment of A Hunch, salaried positions requiring overtime, I would have to investigate exact state laws, and no location is in the question, and any rules changes by Trump's brigade who favors employers over employees.

      It's not a state law. It's a federal law - Fair Labor Standards Act. Has two classifications - exempt & non-exempt. An employee can be hourly non-exempt, salaried non-exempt, or salaried exempt.

    They didn't work any overtime.

    They have a job where overtime is not required - either because they are an exempt employee or their specific job is not included in overtime regulations.

    They are a union employee and the union contact provides comp time instead of overtime compensation (yes, this is still legal if it's part of the bargaining unit agreement).
