Overtime Claims Defense
Congress has enacted protection in the form of the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Equal Pay Act to ensure employees are paid fairly for their time spent working. Any dispute must first be researched to learn as much as possible about the situation. Our attorneys are skilled investigators and detailed researchers. Trust us to explore every avenue while crafting your case strategy to determine what regulations were broken.
Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
The FLSA was enacted by Congress in 1938 and is revised and expanded consistently. The act established federal guidelines that all nonexempt employers must follow with regard to how they pay and treat their employees. The FLSA sets guidelines on workplace aspects including overtime, wage law, child labor and record-keeping. For a more detailed discussion of your rights under the FLSA, do not hesitate to schedule an appointment with a lawyer in our office.
