Working ‘Off The Clock’? You Deserve Pay.
If your employer has required you to work “off the clock,” you deserve pay for the work you have performed and overtime pay if that work exceeded 40 hours in a week. Employers try to get employees to work off the clock in many ways, including not paying for prep time, travel time and other work assignments. However, the law is clear: If it’s work, you should get paid. Under the FLSA, employees are to be paid time and a half for work exceeding 40 hours in a single week. We can help you pursue the wages your employer has failed to pay you.
Another common source of overtime wage claims involves exempt vs. nonexempt status. Generally, exempt workers are salaried, in management positions and not eligible for overtime. Nonexempt employees, however, generally perform production-oriented duties and are to be paid overtime for work exceeding 40 hours per week.
Employers often misclassify exempt workers as nonexempt to avoid paying them overtime. If you are a manager in title only and find yourself performing the routine tasks of an hourly employee, you may have an overtime claim under the FLSA. Our attorneys can help you understand your rights and explore your legal options.
