One of the most common disputes in wage & hour law South Florida involves overtime wages. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, employers are required to pay their employees time and one-half their regular rate of pay for each and every hour worked after 40 hours in a standard work week. The FLSA applies to all workers, regardless of whether the worker receives an hourly wage or is salaried.
Employers must also pay their hourly employees at least minimum wage for all hours worked in Florida. Restaurants and employers of "tipped" employees. who meet the eligibility requirements under the FLSA, can count tips as wages under the state minimum wage. Employers must also pay the “tipped” employee a direct wage. The direct wage is calculated as equal to the minimum wage ($7.31), minus the 2003 tip credit ($3.02) creating a direct hourly wage of $4.29 as of June 1, 2011.
If you are working for an employer that is in violation of the FLSA, it is important to recover the money you deserve. Contact the legal team at Solnick Law P.A. in Aventura today for a consultation in cases involving wage and hour law.
