Are You Entitled to Unpaid Overtime and Other Wages?

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FSLA) and various Illinois statutes regulate overtime (OT) pay, commissions, and other monetary compensation for nonexempt employees. Some employers will try to sidestep the Fair Labor Standards Act by giving employees false titles, such as a manager or executive, to make it appear that they are exempt. In reality, the job duties and structure are that of a nonexempt employee, and, as a result, the employee should be paid according to FLSA regulations.

If you believe you have been denied overtime pay, the lawyers at Edelman, Combs, Latturner & Goodwin, LLC, will use the FSLA and corresponding Illinois laws to protect your employee rights. Call us at 312-739-4200 or contact us online for a free initial consultation.

What Are Some Violations of the FSLA?

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act:

  • A nonexempt employee is entitled to receive one and half times the normal pay for any hours worked over the standard 40 hours/week
  • An employer must pay a nonexempt employee at least the minimum wage

Sometimes it can be difficult to know if your employer has actually violated the FSLA. At Edelman, Combs, Latturner & Goodwin, LLC, we have significant experience handling these types of cases. We will review employment contracts, hour-log sheets, pay stubs and any other documents that can help us determine if regulations were violated and, if so, what legal action needs to be taken.
