Unpaid Wages and Overtime Claims

If you have been denied overtime pay or were not properly paid for all hours worked, you may be able to file a lawsuit against your employer to collect your unpaid wages.

Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA): Is a Federal Law that REQUIRES

  • Payment of the Minimum Wage to employees for all hours worked (Florida Sets Minimum wage at $8.05 per hour for NON-TIP position, or $5.03 per hour for TIPPED employees)
  • Payment of overtime to employees (Usually for those working more than 40 hours in a week)
  • Recordkeeping (Requiring accurate time and payroll records kept for each employee)

There is a limit to how long you have to bring this claim. If you win, the law allows the court to award attorney's fees, so you do not have to pay for representation. If you think you have a claim for unpaid wages or overtime, please call us at 850-696-0314 for a FREE CONSULTATION.
