Protecting your employment rights: legal representation can help ensure fair pay
Did you know that there are laws designed to protect workers to ensure they receive fair compensation from their employers? For more than 40 years, the legal professionals at Robert Peirce & Associates have helped people in our region receive the compensation, overtime and bonuses they deserve.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is designed to protect the legal rights of workers in the United States by ensuring fair compensation for employees and ensuring that eligible workers receive “one and a half times” for overtime.
It is not uncommon for an employee’s position to be misclassified by an employer. This misclassification can prevent an employee from receiving compensation to which they are entitled under the law. Typically, fair pay issues arise in the construction and service industries, where independent contractors are frequently hired. Depending on the circumstances of the job, an employer may improperly classify an employee as an independent contractor, when in fact they are not, and therefore entitled to overtime pay. Often, the employer does not even realize that they have misclassified the employee. In addition, employers may attempt to avoid paying overtime by inappropriately calling managers, supervisors, assistant managers or assistant supervisors of employees when in fact many of these employees are legally entitled to be paid. overtime.
