Has your employer failed to pay you overtime pay? The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, record keeping, and child labor standards affecting full-time and part-time workers in the private sector and in Federal, State, and local governments. Covered, nonexempt workers are entitled to a minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. Nonexempt workers must be paid overtime pay at a rate of not less than one and one-half times their regular rates of pay 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.

If you have not been paid overtime or have been denied overtime pay, there is a possibility your employer acted in violation of federal and/or state overtime law. Over 80% of the working population is entitled to overtime. Those who were wrongfully denied overtime pay may be able to file claims against their employers for up to three years of unpaid overtime pay. To find out if you are entitled to financial compensation for your unpaid overtime contact us today for a free case evaluation. We will review your claim to determine if you can file an overtime lawsuit. You can also go to the United States Department of Labor website to read more about who is and is not entitled to overtime pay. http://www.dol.gov/whd/flsa
