Understanding the Fair Labor Standards Act and Wage and Hour Law

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is federal legislation that establishes working hours, time-and-a-half  overtime pay and child labor laws. The FLSA dictates wage and hour law, which affects both employers and employees.

At Kaufman & Forman, P.C., we represent employers and employees in matters relating to wage and hour law and the FLSA. Contact our law firm in Atlanta, Georgia, to set up an initial consultation.

If an employee has filed a wage and hour complaint against your business, our firm can assist you in exploring your defense options. We will analyze the claim to determine whether it is valid. We will also determine whether the employee had exempt or non-exempt status, which affects his or her right to overtime pay.

Wage and Hour Law for Employees

As an employee, your right to overtime pay is determined by your exempt or non-exempt status. A lawyer from Kaufman & Forman, P.C., can help you determine your status and whether you are eligible for overtime pay. If your employer has failed to adequately compensate you for overtime, you may be eligible for double damages plus attorneys' fees. We can also address issues relating to minimum wage law.
