You deserve to be paid for every hour you’ve worked for your employer.
Has your employer cheated you out of your overtime pay? If you have worked more than 40 hours per week and your employer has not paid you time-and-a-half for your overtime hours you may be eligible to file a claim seeking up to twice the amount of wages you were not paid. And they may have to pay your attorney.
Some employers use scams and tricks to mislead their employees to avoid paying their employees time-and-a-half for overtime hours. They require their employees to complete tasks before clocking in or after clocking out. Having you work "off the clock” is a clear violation of labor law. Other common overtime scams include:
- Averaging hours over two or more workweeks
- Requiring workers to take comp time off in another workweek
- Refusing to pay overtime because you did not obtain permission to work more hours
- Failing to pay you for breaks, meetings and training; work from home; and on-call time
- Improperly classifying you as an exempt salaried employee
- Giving you false titles such as “manager”, “director”, or “department head”
- Improperly claiming you are a sub-contractor or independent contractor.

Unfortunately, many eployers will cheat you or your family by refusing to pay overtime... just to save the company some money.
The FSLA & Unpaid Overtime or Wages
Federal law – the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA) was passed by Congress to guarantee that workers liek you are fairly paid for their time and work. The two most important provisions of the FLSA protect your right to bot a minimum wage and overtime wages:
Minimum Wage – In most cases, your employer must pay you a minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.
Overtime Wages – Your employer must pay hourly employees "time and a half" for all hours of work more than 40 hours each week.
You have two years, under the FLSA, to file a lawsuit in federal court against your current or former employer for unpaid overtime or wages. We can also recover your attorney's fees 100% and, in some cases, we can get you DOUBLE the amount owed to you!
Undocumented Workers are Protected under the FLSA
Undocumented workers are protected under the law and must be paid the same wages as anyone else. This law requires your employer to fully compensate you even if you are not in the US legally. Your Employer cannot attack your immigration status when you sue them for payment of earned overtime or minimum wages.
