Employment Law Case Reviews – Overtime Pay Violation

In reviewing ongoing Department of Labor Cases (DOL), I am seeing that labor laws should not be ignored or violated by employers because there are consequences. The unfortunate part about this case is that the practice in the restaurant industry is not uncommon! To review the article for yourself click here.

If you think your employer has violated the overtime pay provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), you may be wondering what to do next. The first step is to contact an experienced wage and hour attorney to review your case. An attorney will be able to determine whether you have a valid claim and, if so, what damages you may be entitled to recover. You will also need to reach out to representatives at Wage & Hour Division at the Department of Labor (DOL).

In many cases, employees who have been denied overtime pay are also owed back pay and liquidated damages. Back pay is the amount of money you should have been paid for the hours you worked over 40 in a workweek. Liquidated damages are an additional amount equal to your back pay, which may be awarded if your employer acted willfully or recklessly in violating the law.

If you believe you have a claim for overtime pay violations, don’t delay in contacting an experienced wage and hour attorney to review your case. The sooner you take action, the better chances you have of recovering the full amount of money you are owed.

In this case review, I am glad the restaurant employees filed the overtime pay violations and won! For some reason, some employers expect employees to be accountable to them but not be accountable to employees about their actions themselves.
