My company pays for overtime but strongly discourages it and prefers their employees to flex. Can my company force me to flex if I want to claim overtime instead?

My boss emailed me that I need to confirm with her about claiming overtime and that I should utilize flex time instead. I usually claim all my overtime and it seems to be an issue as i'ts very discouraged in my company to do so. Is there anything I can do? As I feel I am being treating differently because I am claiming overtime.

Federal law does not require an employer to work an employee more than forty hours and can freely act to stop employees from working beyond forty hours.
