The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets basic minimum wage and overtime pay standards that affect most private and public employment. These standards are enforced by the United States Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division.
The FLSA, the federal law that requires payment of minimum wages, applies to businesses that have $500,000 or more in annual sales
Wage and hour violations are committed by employers who are either unfamiliar with, or do not respect FLSA laws. Unpaid overtime is another common type of disregard for the law. Thousands of workers have lost wages due to unpaid overtime, unpaid meal breaks and being forced to work “off the clock.” Our laws are designed to protect workers from these practices.
Although the laws are designed to protect workers’ rights, unscrupulous employers do take advantage of their employees. An attorney experienced in wage and hour violation laws will essentially clarify what your legal rights are and provide you with a remedy for your situation.
