Wage and Hour Class Action Lawsuit | Romanucci & Blandin
The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) governs the wage and hour laws. This act states that non-exempt employees are permitted an hourly salary for a least time and half for any hours that go beyond their 40 hours a week or eight hours per day. Many companies ignore this law because they do not want to pay employees for their company to be more productive. When companies do not abide by these rules, they violate FLSA regulations. If your company has violated the FLSA regulations, you can file a class action lawsuit against them.
The wage and hour regulations for overtime for non-exempt employees are concise. Employers are not allowed to:
- Denying employees a break or time to eat
- Paying their employees less than minimum wage
- Require their employees to exchange their overtime wages for other benefits including personal days
- Require their employees to work after standard working hours
In addition to the FLSA regulations, there are other regulations for hours and wages in Illinois state laws and other federal laws. If your employer has not paid you the overtime you deserve, RB Law’s wage and hour class action attorneys can help you with your case. In most cases where your wage and hour rights have been violated, other employees at your company have experienced the same wage deficits in payment for overtime work.
