Why do you think you need a lawyer?
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and youth employment standards to protect employees. Covered nonexempt workers are entitled to a minimum wage of not less than $7.25 per hour effective July 24, 2009.
This means it is unlawful for any employer to pay a nonexempt employee less than $7.25 per hour. This also means your employer is REQUIRED to pay you for every minute you are working. For instance if your place of business opens at 9:00 a.m. and you are required to be there 15 minutes early, your employer MUST pay you for those 15 minutes.
If your employer has not been paying you for time you’ve worked, or is paying you less than minimum wage, you should contact an Experienced Employment Law Attorney.
