By federal law, employers must pay workers a premium of 150% of their regular hourly wage for every overtime hour they work in addition to their 40-hour work week. Employers who fail to comply with the Federal Labor Standards Act (FLSA) may be required to pay employees what they are owed when legal action is taken. If you suspect that your overtime rights have been violated, one of our New Jersey overtime law lawyers would be happy to review your case during a free case evaluation. We have assisted hundreds of individuals during our 30 years of combined experience in obtaining unpaid wages and have successfully litigated class action lawsuits resulting in thousands of dollars.
Some of the most common overtime violations seen at our firm include:
- Miscalculating hourly wages
- Not counting the number of hours worked, such as hours worked at home or off the clock
- Misclassifying employees as exempt for overtime
If we determine that your overtime rights were indeed violated, we can help you file a claim against your employer so that you are rightfully compensated for all your hard work. We can carefully review the details of your case and your employment history to determine if you are truly exempt from receiving overtime wages as claimed by your employer.
