  • $206.00 per working week

These figures are approximate.

In addition, employees in Georgia working over the 40 hours per week gain an entitlement to overtime. This must be at least one and one half times the regular hourly rate as a minimum. So, the overtime minimum wage in Georgia is currently $7.73 per hour. There are some exemptions from overtime pay and these include seasonal; workers, independent contractors and some farm workers.

Note: The overtime pay is calculated as the money compensation for the hours an eligible employee works in a week. The FLSA (Fair Labor Standard Act) states that this must be 1.5 times their regular rate of hourly pay.
