Bober & Bober, P.A. is an employment law firm with an emphasis on claims involving unpaid wages, including unpaid minimum wages and overtime. We are employment attorneys in Florida dedicated to aggressively protecting the legal rights of employees to ensure they receive the wages they are entitled to under both federal and Florida labor laws. Many employees who seek our assistance are covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), which is a national overtime pay law that covers certain employers and employees in all states. Bober & Bober, P.A. overtime lawyers may be able to assist employees in Florida and, through affiliates, can try to assist employees throughout the United States. Employees can use the overtime calculator to obtain an estimate of the amount of overtime pay they still may be owed under the overtime rules, and may wish to contact us directly by phone, e-mail, or through the free on-line questionnaire.
The federal FLSA generally requires most employers to pay their employees at the rate of time and one-half (1 ½ ) times their regular hourly rate when those employees work more than forty (40) hours per week. This may include employees who work forced, mandatory overtime as well as employees who simply work “off the clock.” Generally, if an employer knows or reasonably should know that covered employees are working more than forty (40) hours per week, those employees should probably be paid overtime. Many employers wrongly believe that paying their employees a salary will, in and of itself, make that employee exempt (not-covered) by the Fair Labor Standards Act. Generally, even if a covered employee receives a salary, unless that employee is actually performing certain types of specified job duties, they will be entitled to receive overtime, even if their employer misclassifies them as “exempt.”
