Paycheck Lawyer Gets You Your Overtime Pay

If you have been cheated out of your overtime pay in Florida, New Mexico and Illinois you need to know your rights.

The federal overtime provisions are stated  in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Unless you are exempt, you are covered by the Act  and must receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 in a workweek at a rate not less than time and one-half their regular rates of pay. There is no limit stated  on the number of hours employees aged 16 and older may work in any workweek. The law does not require overtime pay for work on Saturdays, Sundays, holidays, or regular days of rest, unless overtime is worked on such days.

The law for Florida, New Mexico and Illinois  applies on a workweek basis. Your  employee workweek is a fixed and regularly recurring period of 168 hours or seven consecutive 24-hour periods. It need not coincide with the calendar week. It  may begin on any day and at any hour of the day. Different workweeks may be established for different employees or groups of employees. Averaging of hours over two or more weeks is not permitted. Normally, overtime pay earned in a particular workweek must be paid on the regular pay day for the pay period in which the wages were earned.

The bottom line is if you worked over 40 hours in a work week and got cheated out of your overtime pay you need to call the overtime lawyer – Pay Check Lawyer and get your fair pay.

Miami Wage Theft Ordinance | Miami Overtime Wage Theft Lawyer

Miami Wage Theft Lawyer To Help You With Wage Theft Claims

Miami-Dade County Wage Theft Claims

Did you know that Miami-Dade is the first county in the nation to adopt a countywide wage theft law? As Miami wage theft lawyers we are here to help you understand this law and get your overtime wages.
The Wage Theft Ordinance which is governed by Chapter 22 of the Code of Miami-Dade County and became effective on February 28, 2010, applies to private sector employees and employers. The Wage Theft Ordinance policy is to “eliminate and prevent wage theft. Eliminating the underpayment or nonpayment of wages earned by persons working in the County serves the public purpose by promoting economic security and dignity for those working in the County; by promoting business and economic development through the elimination of unfair economic competition by unscrupulous businesses that do not pay or that underpay their employees”; and to relieve “the burden on the public that subsidize unscrupulous employers whose employees are forced to rely on public assistance because of unpaid or underpaid wages.” An employer who  violated the Wage Theft Ordinance by unlawfully failing to pay any portion of wages due will have to pay back-pay and liquidated damages to the employee in addition to administrative fees and hearing costs. To understand your rights call the Loren Wage Theft Law Group today.

If you have been   incorrectly classified  as exempt or as independent contractors under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), in Miami, your  employer has committed “wage theft.” The ordinance is  intended to be a tool to root out violations of U.S. labor laws occurring in Miami-Dade County.

A “wage theft violation”  in Miami occurs when an employer fails to pay any portion of the wages due you , according to the wage rate applicable to the employee, within a reasonable time from the date on which that employee performed the work for which the wages are compensation. The Ordinance defines reasonable time as no later than 14 calendar days from the date the work was performed; however, this time may be modified to no longer than 30 days by an express agreement between the employer and employee that has been reduced to writing and signed by the employee. Moreover, the original ordinance was amended to permit a longer period if the employer has properly established a longer pay period.

This means that, with out a doubt, in Miami if your employer has not paid you overtime they are considered wage thieves. To learn more call us today.
