Fair Labor Standards Act Violation

Experienced Employment Lawyer in Fairfield County

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that regulates the fair payment of employees. While many companies comply with these laws by paying their workers what they deserve, sometimes employers violate one or more of the provisions that are set forth by the FLSA.

The FLSA includes provisions for the following:

  • Minimum wage
  • Overtime pay
  • Tip credit
  • Nursing mothers
  • Child labor
  • Record keeping

What the FLSA Does Not Regulate

The FLSA is primarily set up to establish a standard minimum wage, ensure overtime payment, and regulate the employment of minors.

When preparing to file a claim of an employer violation of FLSA, it is important to know that there are several employment practices that are not regulated by the FLSA, these include:

  • Time off for holidays or vacations
  • Pay for holiday, severance, or sick days
  • Meal or rest periods
  • Fringe benefits or pay raises
  • Premium pay for weekends or holidays
  • Notice of or reason for discharge

These matters are to be agreed upon between the employer and the employee in a contractual agreement prior to the commencing of employment. For assistance in determining if you can file a claim against your employer, contact our experienced employment attorney today.

You deserve to be paid what you are owed. If you are the victim of an employer violating the Fair Labor Standards Act, call the Fairfield County wage and hour violations lawyer at (203) 930-1600.
