More than 130 million American workers are protected (or "covered") by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which is enforced by the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor. The FLSA controls the wages and hours an employee is allowed to work each work-week. It sets a minimum wage standard, provides for maximum hours to be worked, and requires that overtime pay be paid to employees working in excess of 40 hours per week. It also provides rules and penalties for unpaid wages. Finally, the FLSA also creates rules regarding unequal pay based upon the sex of the employee.
Let me help you receive the overtime or unpaid wages you are due from your employer.

You work hard for your money. In today's economy every hour you work matters. If your employer is refusing to pay you overtime you should immediately demand payment. If your employer refuses to pay you overtime you are entitled to, do not just accept this position. Employers often try to minimize their overhead and will often ignore your requests for overtime compensation. If this has happened to you, you may need to hire an experienced attorney to fight for your rights. Because there is a time limit on the length of time you can go back to claim overtime you are due, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as you believe your rights have been denied. Because there are exceptions to every law, it is important that you hire a knowledgeable, competent employment lawyer to aggressively fight for your rights.
