Can someone on salary get paid overtime or time and a half?
Absolutely. It is a common misperception that salaried workers cannot get overtime pay. This is dead wrong. There are plenty of workers who are on salary who are still eligible for overtime or time and a half pay. Call and speak with one of our attorneys today to see if you are eligible for overtime pay.
Can assistant managers get overtime or time and half?
Yes. Again, this is a common misperception. Depending on the duties performed and other factors, assistant managers can still be eligible for overtime or time and a half pay. Call our offices today to speak with one of our attorneys and see if you are eligible for overtime or time and a half pay.
Am I exempt from overtime rules?
May employers will intentionally or negligently classify certain employees as exempt from the overtime laws in order to avoid having to pay overtime or time and a half. Just because your employer has classified you as exempt doesn't mean that you actually are and you may be entitled to significant back wages and punitive damages. Call our offices today to see if you have been properly classified and whether you are due past wages.
How do wage and hour lawyers get paid?
Fortunately, the federal law governing wage and hour violations provides that the employer has to pay the employee's lawyer's fees when a violation is found to have occurred. You don't pay any fees or costs unless we obtain benefits on your behalf.
