Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

Enacted in 1938, the FLSA was established by legislation to set a minimum for wages, overtime, and other wage requirements for businesses. The FLSA specifies how employers must compute overtime compensation, as well as how and when employees must be compensated for their labor, among other things.

If your employer is not following the rules and regulations from FLSA regarding your pay, speaking with an experienced unpaid wage lawyer might be in your best interest. In many circumstances, if an employer fails at complying with FLSA laws, it usually means they are probably failing at following multiple other regulations.

Is It Illegal To Not Get Paid Overtime?

Forced unpaid overtime is against the law, and it is a common FLSA violation. Many businesses refuse to pay overtime to employees who "willfully" work longer hours, yet the FLSA forbids this.

Many restaurants, for example, may require their servers to work "off the clock" in order to finish their duties before leaving their shift. This conduct can be particularly unfair if servers are forced to clean up after their shifts or undertake other chores that are directly relevant to their work obligations on a frequent basis.

Any disagreement about whether an employee's time was spent working or not should be resolved in court.

What Do You Do If Your Not Getting Paid Overtime That You've Worked?

You may be entitled to damages if your employer fails to pay you for all hours worked, including overtime or extra compensation. The amount of compensation you may get will differ, however, it may include the following items:

  • Unpaid overtime for labor completed outside of your usual full-time employment schedule
  • Overtime pay for work completed on weekends or holidays
  • Any overdue pay will accrue interest

Not all examples of unpaid wages and overtime are straightforward situations of workers not being paid for overtime work. The type of job and the employee's categorization can have a huge impact on whether or not there are losses.

As a result, it's vital to consult with an unpaid wage attorney who is aware of your state's laws and has handled similar cases before.
