Can a business compel its employees to sign a form agreeing to $10 an hour wages regardless of overtime worked? My work is trying to force through an agreement that all regular warehouse employees will make $10 an hour no matter how many hours they work, including overtime.

No. The Fair Labor Standards Act controls the wages for all hours worked. That agreement is contrary to the law. You could report this to the US DOL, Wage and Hour Division.

If you are a wage earner, as opposed to a salaried employee, you and the other employees might have a claim against the employer for violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. You and a couple of others who are potentially affected by these actions should consult a Plaintiff's attorney who handles employment law cases.

People do what they want do, but that doesn't make it right or legal. It is against the law to require overtime and not pay it.

No, they must pay their employees overtime rates for overtime work. You should talk to a local attorney or contact the California Labor Commission (assuming that you work in California) about this situation.?

Employer may not lawfully enforce any agreement that is less than minimum wage, with time and a half for all work over 40 hours. I would have to do some math to see if this is a violation or not.
