Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA)

Get Paid Fairly For Your Over-Time Work

The FLSA establishes minimum standards that employers must follow, ensuring fair pay and just treatment for workers. Whether you are a salaried or hourly employee, part-time or full-time, in the private sector or employed by the government, the FLSA safeguards your rights. Under the FLSA, employees in various industries are protected, including millers, pavers, truck drivers, domestic service workers, servers, retail workers, hospital employees, and those working in educational institutions, among others. Regardless of your occupation, if you believe your employer has violated the FLSA regulations, seeking legal guidance is crucial.

If you work more than 40 hours in a workweek, you are entitled to receive time-and-a-half pay for each additional hour. Failure by your employer to comply with this requirement may result in monetary damages for you. If you suspect that you have not been fairly compensated for your overtime work, it is important to consult with an attorney who has experience handling FLSA matters.If you believe you have a valid FLSA claim, it is crucial to act promptly.

How Do I Calculate The Amount Of Overtime Pay I Should Receive?

Calculating overtime pay can be complex, as it involves determining your regular hourly rate and applying the appropriate overtime rate. Typically, overtime pay is calculated by multiplying your regular hourly rate by 1.5 for each hour worked beyond 40 in a workweek. It is important to note that certain factors, such as bonuses and commissions, may also need to be factored into the calculation. Consulting with an attorney who specializes in FLSA claims can ensure accurate and proper calculation of your overtime pay based on the specific circumstances of your case.

How Far Back Can I Claim Unpaid Wages Under The FLSA?

Under the FLSA, employees can typically seek unpaid wages for a limited period of time known as the statute of limitations. The general statute of limitations for FLSA claims is two years. However, if the employer’s violation is deemed willful, the statute of limitations may extend to three years. It is important to consult with an attorney promptly to determine the specific statute of limitations that applies to your case and to take appropriate legal action within the prescribed timeframe. Acting quickly can help ensure you preserve your rights and maximize your chances of recovering the unpaid wages you are owed.

Can My Employer Retaliate Against Me For Filing An FLSA Claim?

The FLSA prohibits employers from retaliating against employees who exercise their rights under the Act. If you believe your employer has retaliated against you for asserting your FLSA rights, consult with an attorney who can advise you on the protections available and help you take appropriate legal action.
