Wage and Hour Violations | Discrimination and Harassment | Overtime Claims | Misclassification of Workers | Denial of Meals or Breaks | Minimum Wage Violations
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), a federal statute, workers are protected from certain practices by their employers, from the denial of overtime pay to requirements that employees complete projects “off the clock,” from asking workers to perform job-related tasks on their off-duty time to the denial of appropriate breaks or time for meals.
