Employers are required to follow both the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state law. Employees deserve to be paid for their work as required by law. If you believe your employer has violated wage and hour laws, you may have a valid case against them. Wage and Hour violations include:
- Unpaid wages
- Unpaid overtime
- Unpaid training
- Misclassification as independent contractor
If you believe that you have been the victim of wage violations, you should seek legal representation as soon as possible. There are time limitations for wage claims, so you should not delay in consulting with an employment law attorney regarding a possible case.
