EMPLOYMENT ATTORNEY IN STUART
When an employee works more than 40 hours in a single work week, or if an employee performs manual labor for more than 10 hours in a single day, he or she may be working overtime. Some companies require employees to work overtime to finish projects or prepare for upcoming events, and others allow employees the opportunity to work overtime hours to make extra money. Whatever the reason for the excess work hours, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires that employers compensate these workers with overtime pay that is at least one and a half times their regular pay rate if the employee is not otherwise exempt from overtime pay provisions. At times, however, an employer may refuse to pay the overtime wages or stall the payment of these wages. If this is happening to you, it is imperative that you retain the services of a Stuart lawyer immediately to discuss your case and determine your legal options.
