What are common Fair Labor Standards Act lawsuits?

The Fair Labor Standards Act, otherwise known as the FLSA, was put into place in order to keep employees like you safe from being mistreated at the workplace. Here at Kaufman & Forman, P.C., we understand that violations of the FLSA need to be dealt with swiftly and will provide you with information you need to handle the situation.

First, you should be aware of the fact that most FLSA class-action lawsuits involve some form of employee misclassification. If you have been misclassified, you may find yourself being cheated out of benefits or pay that you would otherwise be entitled to. This is particularly true when it comes to your exempt or nonexempt status, or if you have been labeled as a contract worker despite working the same hours or amount as a regular employee.

Other violations of the FLSA can include delayed payments, not having all of your work counted properly, or being required or forced to work undocumented hours, or “off the clock” hours. Essentially, any time that you are doing more work for less or no pay, you should not overlook it. Chances are pretty high that you’re dealing with a situation where your employer, either intentionally or unintentionally, is violating the FLSA. This means that you can evoke legal action and take steps to right the situation.
