Employee overtime(forty or more hours in a workweek), wage and hour, and minimum wage is protected by the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and as the Department of Labor has stated “almost every employee in the United States is covered by the FLSA.” The Florida Minimum Wage Act also ensures that employees in Florida receive minimum wage.
If you have worked more than forty (40) hours in a given work week while employed by your current or prior employer, you may be entitled to recover money damages. You may be entitled to money damages even if you were:
- A salaried employee
- A commissioned employee
- An “independent contractor.”
Some common industries where overtime violations may occur are: construction, manufacturing, retail, food and beverage, restaurants, agriculture, service based industries, and skills or trade industries (pest control, plumbers, lawn techs, cable installers, etc.). Some common overtime violations occur when an employee is paid commissions, piece meal, day rates, production, bonuses, tips, or other forms of remuneration other than an hourly wage.
