Wage and Overtime Claims - Fair Labor Standards Act

Montgomery County Wage and Overtime Claims Lawyer

Seeking Full and Fair Compensation for Philadelphia-Area Workers

Federal and state laws establish the minimum wage for employees and require the overtime to be paid to employees who are not exempt from overtime under the law. All employees who qualify for coverage under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state law are entitled to receive minimum wage. If you in a position that is not exempt from receiving overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act, you are entitled to overtime wages for hours worked in excess of 40 hours during a defined work week.

Sometimes employers fail to understand the wage and hour requirements of the FLSA and corresponding state law, and fail to pay their employees properly for all time worked. If you have not been paid fairly, Kimberly H. Ashbach, Esq. can help. As an experienced Philadelphia wage and hour attorney, I know the FLSA in depth and can help you protect your rights.

What Does the FLSA Cover?

The FLSA is comprehensive and complex statute governing:

  • Failure to pay minimum wage or overtime
  • Improper docking or charge back to wages
  • Failure to properly classify workers
  • What time is quote is "time worked" including required preparation to work or being "on call" for work
  • Youth employment
  • Break time for nursing mothers

Who is Not Protected by the FLSA?

Some workers are exempt from the overtime requirements because they are salaried employees and considered to be professional, and therefore exempt from coverage. Workers who are generally exempt from overtime pay include:

  • Executive, administrative and outside sales professionals
  • Computer professionals
  • Professional and scientific personnel
  • Commissioned sales personnel of retail establishments
  • Seasonal and recreational employees
  • Certain religious organizations

Testimonials

We really can't say enough about Kim. She took on our case when even the 'big' law firms in Philadelphia were reluctant, as our legal problem was very unique and many lawyers hadn't really ever heard of what we were trying to accomplish... However, due to Kim's extremely competent, professional and tenacious manner, it wasn't long before we saw our matter resolved to our satisfaction. We would highly recommend her as an attorney. Thank you, Kim, for a great job. You made a tremendous difference in two people's lives!
