Why You Need to Speak to a Lawyer After a FLSA Violation
While a FLSA violation may seem obvious to you, proving it is not always easy. You’ll need to be able to show that a violation has taken place and trace the extent of that violation. You may have to prove that this action was purposeful and egregious.
Handling these and other legal complexities on your own can lead to a failure to collect what is owed to you, along with extensive stress as you pursue your claim alone.
With the assistance of a lawyer, you’ll be able to better organize your case to ensure the best possible results. Your lawyer can handle all the complicated aspects of your case, from investigation to negotiations to trial, if necessary, so that you don’t have to. With a lawyer’s help, you are likely to reach a much better outcome with much less stress.

Ways Businesses May Violate the Fair Labor Standards Act
There are three main components to the FLSA, all of which New York employers may violate, although some are more common than others. Those components include:
- Violation of the federal minimum wage: This issue has grown less common because of New York’s higher minimum wage, but it still does occur. If you are receiving less than $7.25 an hour and your work is not exempt from minimum wage pay, we will file a FLSA claim on your behalf.
- Violation of rights to overtime pay: Far more common is a violation of FLSA requirements for overtime pay. Unless you have a position that is exempt from overtime pay, if you are not receiving at least 1.5 times your normal wages for every hour over 40 hours you work per week, you are being denied your rightful pay. Employers use many tactics to try to avoid paying overtime, including asking employees to work through lunch or breaks, wrongfully labeling employees as exempt, or telling salaried employees they are not entitled to overtime. Contact us to find out whether your position is exempt from these requirements or not.
- Violation of child employment restrictions: Most labor from children is forbidden by the FLSA. Contact us to find out about the specific requirements and exceptions to this restriction, and whether your child’s rights have been violated.
Whatever tactics your business is using to undermine the protections in the FLSA, if you aren’t getting what you are owed, we will fight for you to make sure those wages are returned in full.
