This is because they are considered self-employed and are not covered under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) which governs overtime pay for employees. Independent contractors negotiate their own rates and are responsible for managing their own work schedule and workload. However, if an independent contractor is misclassified and should have been considered an employee, they may be entitled to overtime pay.
