Wage and Hour Claims

All workers in the U.S. are protected by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), a federal law that provides workers with basic protections regarding their pay and hours worked, such as the 40-hour work week, overtime requirements and the federal minimum wage.

Common ways in which employers violate this law are by pressuring or ordering employees to work off the clock, altering time cards, denying overtime and much more.

Employees that are not exempt from the FLSA must be paid “time and a half” (one and a half times their normal wage) for any hours worked over 40 hours per week.
