Overtime Lawyers - Unpaid Wage Attorneys

If you worked more than 40 hours per week without overtime pay, your employer may be in violation of a federal overtime law known as the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The FLSA states that employers must pay eligible employees time-and-a-half their regular rate for every hour worked over 40 in a single workweek. When an employer denies a worker overtime pay and violates the FLSA, the employee may be able to recover compensation through an overtime lawsuit.

Although many overtime violations are unintentional, some employers may use overtime scams to avoid paying employees time-and-a-half for overtime hours. For instance, an employer may force their workers to complete job tasks before clocking in or after clocking out. This is commonly known as working "off the clock" and is a clear violation of overtime law. Other common overtime scams include:

  • Averaging hours over two workweeks
  • Refusing to pay overtime because the employee did not obtain permission to work more hours
  • Failing to pay workers for breaks lasting between 5 and 20 minutes; meetings and training sessions; take-home work; and some on-call time

If you suspect your employer is wrongfully denying you overtime pay, fill out our free form on the right. Our overtime lawyers may be able to recover damages up to twice the amount of unpaid overtime owed to you. However, you only have a certain amount of time to file your claim. Failing to file within this time period may prevent you from ever collecting unpaid overtime. Contact our experienced overtime lawyers today.

Do I Qualify For Overtime?

The unit of time used to determine overtime compensation is the workweek. A workweek is classified as seven consecutive 24-hour periods. If an employee's hours worked exceeds 40 hours for any job related activity during that time period, they need to be compensated.
