Over-Time For After Hours Meetings?

Question Ask the Workplace Doctors about pay for meetings after hours:

Just wondered if anyone had the same problem with meetings scheduled at 5:00 or after clinic hours each month. The time we spend in the meeting is not paid as overtime, but must flex our time the same week. If an employer schedules meetings after work hours shouldn’t this be paid as overtime? Some meetings are mandatory but we must attend 9 out of 12 per year in order to avoid a decrease in our yearly raises. I also thought mandatory meetings were illegal, especially when after our 8 hours are worked. Thank you.
