non-exempt pay

non-exempt employees only get paid overtime if they have worked 40 hours in one week. Does it matter how many hours they work in a day?

Overtime is based on the work week, not the day.

You are right; overtime is paid on hours worked over 40 in a week. It is not calculated on the hours worked in a day. Thus, a non-exempt employee can work 25 hours in one day and no hours the rest of the week and not be eligible for any overtime.
