Fair Labor Standard Act

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) has been protecting employees since 1937. Under its two central provisions — the minimum wage requirement and the overtime provision — employers are obligated to pay you the wages required by the FLSA and if you are classified as non-exempt, pay for your overtime. The lawyers at JP Salas Law are well qualified to determine if you have a wage, hour or overtime law case against your employer.

Wage disputes can range from simple misclassification errors to complex and time-consuming cases where employers have deliberately violated the law. We can clearly and precisely explain your employment rights under Florida law and the FLSA. Our attorneys have recovered earnings and other damages related to:

  • Misclassification of employees as exempt from wage and hour laws
  • Unpaid overtime and sick days
  • Violation of minimum wage laws
  • Unpaid lunch and rest periods in violation of the law
  • Independent contractor rights
  • Late pay
  • Unpaid reimbursement for work-related expenses
  • Improper deductions

Our firm strives to get workers the fair treatment they are entitled to by law. Our attorneys are intimately familiar with both state and federal standards in wage and overtime law and will zealously work to protect your rights. Furthermore, under the FLSA, it is unlawful for an employer to fire or discriminate against an employee who has filed a complaint or participated in an FLSA legal proceeding.
