Wage and Hour Lawsuits
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (or FLSA),employers are required to pay at least the minimum wage and overtime to every single one of their “nonexempt” employees. When it comes to Wage and Hour Lawsuits in Florida, many of them are about whether employees are really exempt or should have been classified as nonexempt, which makes them eligible for minimum wage and overtime.
There is a wide variety of possible claims a Florida employer can make to defeat an employee’s Wage and Hour claim. For example, an employer might show solid evidence proving that an employee did not actually work more than 40 hours in one week and therefore is not eligible for overtime. Also, a Florida employer might present evidence showing that an employee is actually an exempt manager or a professional employee.
These days, investigations into alleged Wage and Hour violations are happening more and more frequently. Employees in Florida are pursuing class action litigation against their employers with an astonishingly increasing regularity. For that reason, Florida employers need experienced and intelligent attorneys to help them limit their vulnerability to litigation and to provide a strategic and strong defense when litigation is the only option.
