City accused of wage and hour law violations on overtime pay

If these calculations are done incorrectly and the errors are not remedied, Florida workers may feel that the company is violating a wage and hour law.

Theater janitors file a class action lawsuit for unpaid overtime

Many hard-working people go to work every day expecting to be paid a fair wage for the work that they do.

When workers do the work but do not get paid, they may decide to file claims to get the unpaid overtime and income they believe that they are missing.

According to state and federal employment guidelines, employees must be paid at least the minimum hourly wage.

Walmart accused of denying assistant store managers overtime pay

Walmart is in the headlines again with claims that its workers are not being paid properly. Shoppers in Florida and across the country may be surprised to hear the way in which the retail giant is allegedly treating its employees. Depending on a worker's classification, they may be salaried and exempt from overtime, but the type of work they do must be consistent with that title according to state and federal employment laws. When those rules are broken and employees are not receiving the overtime they feel they deserve, they may need to combat the company to get paid.

Poor payroll records lead to an unpaid overtime and wages suit

In order to account for all of the time employees work, they are typically required to punch a clock or the company must have some other method of timekeeping in place. Hourly workers should not be offered a flat rate which does not take into account the actual number of hours they work, including those that would be considered overtime.  It is illegal for employers in Florida and elsewhere to not keep accurate time records, which could result in unpaid overtime and lost wages.

The way in which employees are classified can directly impact how they are paid.

Driver complains his classification denies him overtime pay

Many consumers enjoy goods from all across the country because of the work of truck drivers. These men and women drive the roadways in Florida and elsewhere and expect to be compensated for the long hours that they spend away from home. Whether the drivers receive payment for overtime is dependent upon the way in which they are classified. If drivers work the hours and are not classified correctly, the drivers may turn to the law to receive their unpaid overtime.

Google accused of improperly classifying independent contractors

Many people may not be educated in the way in which they should be classified when working for their employer. The way that an individual in Florida is classified has a dramatic influence over the way in which he or she is paid and the benefits that can be received. Those who are classified as independent contractors are not eligible to receive overtime, which can dramatically affect one's paycheck.

Unpaid overtime may concern Florida employees

Many workers understand that there may be certain protocols and routines that must be followed before starting their workplace duties. However, in some cases, these routines could take a considerable amount of time to complete, and if individuals are not considered to be on the clock, they could potentially be missing out on additional pay. Unpaid overtime has been an issue for many workers in Florida and across the country, and taking legal action is sometimes necessary.
