Do you believe that your employer has violated the Fair Labor Standards Act? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help.
The Fair Labor Standards Act, 29 U.S.C. § 201 et seq. (“FLSA”) contains provisions setting the federal minimum wage. The FLSA also contains provisions which define the payment of time and a half, commonly referred to as overtime. Generally, employers must pay non-exempt hourly employees overtime for all hours worked in excess of forty in one work week.
If your employer has violated the FLSA, the employer may be subject to either an individual or class civil action in federal court. Under the FLSA, an employee can collect unpaid wages for the period of two years preceding the filing of a complaint. If the employer knew of the violation and committed the violation willfully, the employer can recover one additional year of unpaid wages. Further, an employee is entitled to recover an amount equal to the unpaid wages in liquidated damages, as well as reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
