Experienced Attorney Handles Wage And Overtime Claims

Various state and federal laws protect employee rights regarding wages and overtime. There are two central provisions: the minimum wage requirement and the overtime provision. Employers are obligated to pay the minimum hourly wage for all non-exempt employees. Employers are also required to pay overtime to all non-exempt employees when they work for more than 40 hours in a week. Violations of these laws can take many forms, including:

  • Misclassification of employees as exempt from overtime
  • Unpaid overtime
  • Violation of minimum wage laws
  • Failure to pay earned wages

Overtime Exemptions

Certain employees are exempt from the overtime laws, and therefore, are not entitled to overtime even if he or she works more than 40 hours in a week. The most common examples of exempt employees are the following:

  • An employee that works in an executive, administrative or professional capacity
  • An outside sales employee
  • An employee employed in agriculture
  • An employee that is a computer analyst, computer programmer, software engineer, or other similarly skilled worker

Your lawyer can help you determine whether you are an exempt or non-exempt employee.

Retaliation

A complaint to your employer about an unlawful wage practice is considered “protected activity.” An employer is not allowed to take any negative action against an employee because he or she engaged in protected activity by making a complaint of unfair wage practices, such as the nonpayment of overtime. Any negative action taken because of protected activity is considered retaliation and is against the law.
