Can the right to overtime pay be waived by private agreement?

09/04/2020

Q: “Can a board of county commissioners in South Dakota have a nonexempt employee sign a document to the effect that the employee would not ask for overtime pay or comp time off? The employee has agreed not to come back to the county in the future for any compensation. HR feels federal law supersedes this agreement.” – Tim, South Dakota
