Wage and Hour
Employment Law Attorneys Protecting Your Rights To Fair Pay For Hours Worked
The Fair Labor Standards Act, (“FLSA”), provides basic protection to workers from abusive employment practices. The FLSA establishes the standard forty hour work week, and mandates the payment of minimum wage to all employees for all hours worked. The law also mandates employers compensate all non-exempt employees at the over-time wage rate for all hours worked over forty in a given week. Common Employment Law violations include denying over-time pay, misclassifying employees as independent contractors, ordering employees to work off the clock, and failing to keep accurate time and pay records for all employees.
Am I Covered By Employment Law Protections?
Employment laws cover all who work in America or in certain circumstances, those who work for an American company oversees. Minimum wage and over-time laws apply to citizens and non-citizens employed in the United States or by United States corporations. Over the last 80 years, the federal government enacted several laws to protect employees from abusive employment practices. The Fair Labor Standards Act requires the payment of a minimum wage and overtime wages to employees. Title VII of the civil rights act prohibits discrimination or harassment
in the work place and the Jones Act protects seamen or those working off-shore on a US ship
or vessel from abusive employment practices.
