A Past or Current Employer May Have Misclassified You As "Exempt".
(over) time is money
even if you are a salaried employee
ou are entitled to overtime and the other benefits of the Fair Labor Standards Act unless you an “exempt” employee. If your past or current employer wrongfully classified you as "exempt", you may be entitled to back pay, liquidated damages and attorney fees.
The wage rules apply to both your past and current employers. And the rules apply even if your employment was terminated, if you resigned, if you were paid “off the books”, or if you were an undocumented worker.
PLEASE: Do not assume or jump to the conclusion that you are not owed any wages. This is
a legal decision that must be determined by a labor and
employment lawyer. This is why we offer a free, confidential consultation. In many cases, employees do not know that they are being paid less than they are owed. You might be surprised to discover that a past or current employer owes you significant wages and damages, for not paying you what you were owed. In addition, the law says your employer cannot retaliate against you for asserting your right to wages that you should have been paid.
If this situation sounds like an experience you have had with a past or present employer then we can help you. Either call us toll free at: 1•844•wage4me (1•844•924•3463) or contact us here for a free consultation..
