Wage and Hour Employment Law

Are your receiving the same exact hourly rate of pay even though you work more than 40 hours per week?

If you answered yes than you are probably entitled to compensation. Employment Law is often a complex area of legal practice and our Labor and Employment attorneys can answer your questions. For example overtime pay is a right for hourly workers, perhaps your employer pays you a “straight salary” when in fact you should be receiving an hourly wage with overtime rights according to the Florida Department Labor and the U.S. Department of Labor.

The Fair Labor Standards Act also known as the FLSA vests these employment rights in all eligible workers. Some people refer to the FLSA as the “overtime law”.

Actually the FLSA is more comprehensive and addresses more than issues surrounding overtime pay for unpaid overtime and unpaid salary.

Most overtime and wage disputes involve one or more of the following issues:

•Vacation pay
•Minimum wage
•Unpaid overtime
•Unauthorized deductions
•Reporting early, extra tasks
•Employee misclassification
•Payment for “on call” status
•Accumulated sick or medical leave
