If your employer is not paying your wages intentionally or unintentionally, you have a right to be paid.
At Elstein Law Firm, we help workers recover the wages and overtime pay that they are owed. The state of Florida is held to the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act. According to this law, each employer must pay their workers. If they do not, the employee has the right to file a suit in order to recover their unpaid wages and liquidated damages. Our attorneys are familiar with the employment laws and the regulations of the Department of Labor.
Some people do not realize that they are missing out on their wages. Occasionally, employers may misclassify an activity or not understand that it should be counted. Sometimes, employers may also deduct too much from a paycheck or not pay tipped employees as much as they should. Some of the reasons for filing a suit include:
– Incorrectly changed time logs
– Not being reimbursed for travel time
– Working “off-the-clock”
– Not being allowed the legally required breaks or meal times.
– Being paid at an hourly rate for overtime hours
– Being clocked out automatically for breaks or lunches even if they are not taken
– Being paid below Florida’s minimum wage rate
– Not being paid for preparation or cleanup
– Lack of pay for training classes or vacation time
– Not being paid for being required to be on the employer’s premises
