Overtime & Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

Unpaid Overtime & Unpaid Minimum Wages Lawyer in Florida

Serving Clients in Palm Beach County, Broward County & Miami-Dade County

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires employers to pay time and a half for every hour over 40 hours worked in a week, and to pay wages that come out to the minimum wage for every hour worked.

Failure to make these payments is called wage theft, and it can result in severe penalties to the employer, and payment to the underpaid employee of double or more the amount owed, plus legal fees and expenses. It is possible to go back two years (sometimes three years) to recover these funds from current or former employers.

Call (877) 745-0090 now or contact us online for a free consultation about your situation.

There are a number of ways in which employers steal wages from employees, including:

  • Refusal to pay you overtime
  • Refusal to pay you for working off-the-clock, such as answering work emails, preparing work reports or documents from home, being “on-call,” working during meal breaks, attending work-related classes or attending before- or after-work meetings
  • Paying you less than minimum wage
  • Classifying you as “exempt” in an attempt to deny overtime
  • Classifying you as an independent contractor to deny you overtime pay
  • Failure to properly track the hours you actually work
  • Pooling your tips with employees who do not receive tips, thus shortchanging your actual income
  • Averaging your hours over more than a one-week period, thus denying you potential overtime pay in any one week
  • Failing to pay you a final payment after leaving employment

At NK Legal Group, we spend a lot of our time handling Fair Labor Standards Act cases, and attorney Nolan Klein has recently taught a class on how to handle these cases for clients. If you were unpaid for your any overtime work – or were paid less than a minimum wage for all hours worked – then you need to contact us for a free legal consultation.

Bringing an Effective Lawsuit

You are entitled to be paid fairly for your work. At NK Legal Group we fight for employees and workers who were not paid a fair and required wage. If you were not paid extra for overtime, or enough money to equal a minimum wage for every hour worked, then you may have an FLSA claim, and be entitled to recover at least double the amount owed to you.

You can file an FLSA lawsuit against any employee who did not pay you properly at any time during the past two years, even if you no longer work for that person or company.

We flight hard for underpaid employees. Call NK Legal Group for a free consultation.
