Lawyer Central is pleased to announce that it has recently updated its Unpaid Overtime Law Resource Center, a comprehensive source of legal information for workers who have been denied the overtime pay they deserve. According to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), non-exempt employees should receive time-and-a-half pay for hours worked over 40 in a workweek. Lawyer Central is dedicated to helping workers make sure they are properly paid for all overtime hours worked.
The FLSA states that exempt workers are not eligible to receive overtime pay. However, workers should be aware that it is their job duties, not job title, that determines whether they are exempt or non-exempt. Some employers intentionally misclassify their employees as exempt under the executive exemption, administrative exemption, professional exemption, computer employee exemption, or outside sales exemption in order to avoid paying them for their overtime hours. If you have been misclassified, an overtime attorney from Lawyer Central can help you recover the overtime pay you have earned.
Lawyer Central’s Unpaid Overtime Law Resource Center now features an Answers and Information section that addresses the basics of the Fair Labor Standards Act and overtime law. An overview of the overtime exemptions and a description of the scams used by employers to cheat their employees out of the overtime pay they have earned are also featured. These overtime scams include forcing employees to work off the clock, misclassifying employees as exempt from overtime pay, and short changing hours. A fourth section provides legal information for workers with unpaid overtime claims, including information about overtime lawsuits, damages that can be recovered, and protection from employer retaliation.
If you believe that you have been denied the overtime pay to which you are entitled, visit Lawyer Central's Unpaid Overtime Law Resource Center today, and complete the Free Legal Advice form to find out if you have a valid claim for unpaid overtime wages.
