Overtime is based on working over 40 hours in a work week. The work week is defined by the employer. It can be any 7 day period. It can be Sunday through Saturday, Monday through Sunday, Wednesday through Tuesday, etc.

Whatever the work week is as defined by the employer, any employee who works more than 40 hours during that work week must, if they are non-exempt, be paid at least time and a half for the hours over 40.
