Wage & Hour Disputes (FLSA)
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and youth employment standards affecting employees in the private sector and in Federal, State, and local governments. Covered nonexempt workers are entitled to a minimum wage of not less than $7.25 per hour effective July 24, 2009. Overtime pay at a rate not less than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay is required after 40 hours of work in a workweek.
Wages required by the FLSA are due on the regular payday for the pay period covered. Deductions made from wages for such items as cash or merchandise shortages, employer-required uniforms, and tools of the trade, are not legal to the extent that they reduce the wages of employees below the minimum rate required by the FLSA or reduce the amount of overtime pay due under the FLSA.
As an FLSA attorney in Florida, I help employees reclaim unpaid wages and overtime. If your employer has withheld overtime payments from you, falsified timecard or recordkeeping data, misclassified you as an exempt employee to render you ineligible for overtime payments, forced you to pay for work essentials out-of-pocket, or has failed to pay you Florida’s minimum wage, they may be in violation of Federal and Florida Wage Laws. You are well within your right to seek counsel and possibly pursue legal action. As an FLSA attorney, I am equipped to guide you through the legal process.
