Asserting Your Rights To Overtime And Minimum Wage Pay

The states and federal government have established a number of laws to prevent employers from exploiting their employees. One of these laws is the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which protects workers against violations of their rights to minimum wage and overtime pay, and stipulates that employers must keep accurate records of their employees' time.

When FLSA violations occur many workers are afraid to report their employers, and many are unaware that their rights are being infringed in the first place.

Given this scenario, it is important to consult with a knowledgeable lawyer if you are facing wage, hour or other workplace exploitation. To this end, Jake Modla Law, PLLC, can be of service. With offices in Rock Hill and Charlotte, and assisting clients throughout South Carolina and North Carolina, Jake has a thorough understanding of employment law matters and workplace violations. He will work rigorously to assert your rights.

Employers Frequently Violate The FLSA

The FLSA offers protections with regard to:

  • Minimum wage
  • Overtime pay
  • Hours worked
  • Recordkeeping
  • Child labor

Yet employers often bend the rules. Some may force employees to work off-the-clock, or fail to pay remote employees for all the hours they put in at home. Some deliberately misclassify workers, wrongfully exempting them from overtime pay. Workers are often compelled to forego their rightful breaks for meals and other considerations.
