The Fair Labor Standards Act (the “FLSA”) sets the federal minimum wage and overtime pay for employers. An employer’s failure to follow the FLSA can result in: unpaid minimum and/or overtime wages; employee misclassification; off-the-clock work; time or pay deductions; and unpaid salaries or commissions. These type of illegal pay practices, whether intentional or not, can result in employee wage theft.
If you’ve experienced wage theft, you may be able to recover double the amount of back wages owed to you, plus your attorney’s fees and costs.
The FLSA has a variety of exceptions that may apply to your particular situation. Espy Law has significant experience in this area of the law and can help you recover the wages you’ve earned.
