Unpaid Overtime

Introduction:

Every year, employers fail to pay employees millions of dollars in collective overtime. An employer’s failure to pay proper wages or overtime can result in an award of damages equal to the unpaid wages or overtime, an equal amount in liquidated damages, and pre-judgment interest.

If you have not been paid for working overtime, or have not been compensated the amount owed to you, contact our law firm now to protect your legal rights.

Your Rights:

Every employee in the United States is entitled to overtime.

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act; any time that you work in excess of 8 hours in a day or 40 hours in a week you are required to be compensated at a rate of 1.5 times your normal rate.

Any time that you work in excess of 12 hours in a day you are required to be compensated at a rate of 2 times your normal rate.

There are exemptions from the law, but these exemptions are narrow and limited.

If you have not been paid for working overtime, or have not been compensated the money owed to you, contact our law firm now to protect your legal rights.
