Overtime and Minimum Wage Claims
Have you worked overtime and not been paid time and a half? Have you ever worked for an employer and not made at least minimum wage for every hour you have worked. Has an employer ever forced you to share tips or “tip pool”? If any of the above have happened to you while at work you’re entitled to damages against your employer.
If you are an hourly employee you MUST be paid time and a half for any hours over (40) you work in a week. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, any employees who are not properly paid overtime are entitled to receive all of the back owed overtime wages due to them. In addition, they’re also entitled to an equal amount of liquidated damages and an award of their attorney’s fees and costs.
Overtime work also includes pre-shift and post-shift work that is essential to an employee’s duties, and time spent commuting between different locations of the company.
Often times it’s not just you that is not getting paid proper wages but it is a systematic problem among all employees.
