The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) (“the Act”), one of the oldest employment laws in the United States, impacts businesses large and small, in every industry. Its provisions are designed to protect workers from employers who would take advantage of them. However, even the most conscientious employer can be at risk of inadvertently violating the Act’s provisions, or of a current or former employee claiming that the employer violated the Act.
The FLSA litigation attorneys at Hamra Law Group represent employer against FLSA claims, helping to defend and protect their interests – and the reputations of their businesses.
At its most basic level, the FLSA provides a framework of rules employers must follow for paying employees fair wages and overtime, establishes record keeping requirements for employers, and sets standards for the employment of anyone under the age of 18.
The most common types of FLSA claims involve misclassification of workers, situations where employees claim they were not paid for work completed “off the clock”, overtime violation claims, and cases related to tipped employees required to share tips with employees who are not eligible for tips.
Hamra Law Group represents employers against these and other FLSA claims, asserting every available legal defense.
Class action and multi-plaintiff FLSA litigation are becoming more common when current and/or former workers band together to allege an employer violated one or more provisions of the FLSA.
Hamra Law Group can help your business protect itself from these types of claims, and defend against them when they arise.
