    While some state laws provide variations on this principal, overtime is calculated based upon a 7-day week, wherein all hours worked over 40 during that period are compensable at 1.5 pay. The 13th day, depending on when the company's work week started, would be at straight time. There are some complicated exceptions to this, but hopefully this helps.
