Employee Wage & Hour Rights
The Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), originally passed by Congress in 1938, requires employers throughout the United States to pay minimum wage and further protects employees who work over 40 hours a week. The FLSA allows employees to sue a business and its owner when they are not being paid minimum wage or overtime. If you believe you have not been paid minimum wage or overtime, it is important to hire an experienced employment lawyer who can help you recover all of your lost wages.
If you are a tipped employee, your employer must notify you that your tips are being counted toward minimum wage. Your employer is still required to pay you the equivalent of minimum wage each hour, and they are required to keep track of all of the hours that you work.
It is against the law for your employer to fire you or demote you if you complain to your boss or sue your employer for not being paid minimum wage or overtime. The law provides employees with protection, allowing you to continue working for your employer even if you have sued them for not paying minimum wage or overtime.
