Your Employee Rights May Have Been Violated
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), also known as the Wages and Hours Bill, is a federal law that applies to employers for the benefit of employees. The FLSA has established:
· a national minimum wage;
· guaranteed time and a half for overtime in certain jobs;
· prohibits oppressive child labor.
The federal minimum wage is the minimum hourly pay an employer must pay an employee. Most States also have minimum wage laws, which are often higher than the FLSA. Usually the higher minimum wage law applies for the benefit of the employee.
Covered employees must receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 per work week at a rate not less than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay. There is no limit on the number of hours employees aged 16 years or older may work in a workweek. The FLSA does not require overtime pay for work on weekends, holidays, or regular days of rest, unless overtime is worked on such days. State wage and hour laws may, however, provide increased benefits for work on weekends and holidays.
Hours WorkedHours worked usually includes all time during which an employee is required to be on the employer's property, on duty, or at a prescribed workplace. This often includes short scheduled breaks, routine unscheduled breaks, meal breaks, and lunch breaks.
Employers must display an official Department of Labor poster outlining the requirements of the FLSA. Employers must also keep and maintain employee time and pay records.
Misclassifying Employees as Exempt From Wage and Hour Requirements
Unfortunately, employers may and do misclassify workers as FLSA exempt employees to avoid paying their workers overtime. This may be a violation of federal or State employment overtime law.
Please keep in mind that most States also have labor laws, including Wage and Hour laws, which apply to employers such as Masco. These laws often have even more strict requirements than the federal FLSA.
