Here at Weltz Law, our professional attorneys have years of experience in representing clients in cases with regards to FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) violations. This act sees the rules and regulations which decide how basic interactions between employers and their workers should be. This includes areas such as minimum wage, OT (overtime) pay, and child labor laws. Employers can be found to be guilty of FLSA violations if they have been found to essentially exploit their employees for their time and money.
It can be a complicated world to navigate. Hiring a competent and committed attorney to help you fight your case is a wise thing to do. Take the first step by scheduling a consultation with an attorney from Weltz Law by calling (877) 905-7671.
Understanding FLSA Violations
Under the FLSA, employers are required to classify their employees in the proper way. Their workers can be classified as non-exempt or exempt employees, where the non-exempt employees must be paid OT for the hours that exceed the standard 40 hours in a week. As such, compensation must be part of the regular pay rate so as to properly calculate the amount of OT pay that needs to be given to the employee. Some of the most frequent violations include classifying employees wrongly and calculating OT pay wrongly. In this age where FLSA violation cases are becoming more and more common, it is only beneficial to receive advice from a securities attorney that can help to make your case stronger as well.
Employees Who are Exempt from FLSA
It is important to note that while the FLSA standard applies to all employers, there are some employees who are exempt from some of the regulations. These group of employees include doctors, lawyers, salespeople, executives, and others. Despite this, the Department of Labor has stated before that employers should decide whether or not their employees are exempt from the FLSA after thorough consideration based on every individual case. Additionally, it is worth noting that the FLSA covers employees whose work involves manual labor.
Making an FLSA Violations Case
Most FLSA cases are settled on a federal level. They are typically brought to the federal courts as collective actions, where employees can fight their case with as many claims as they want. When such suits are filed, plaintiffs are required to ask for conditional certification from the federal court. However, filing a complaint for damages caused by employers can be a complicated process because it involves going to the WHD (Wage and Hour Division) to file the case and understanding legal jargon. Hence, hiring an attorney to help and guide you through this will simplify the process greatly.
