Wage & Hour Violations

The phrase “Wage & Hour” commonly refers to legal issues regarding wages (salary v. hourly pay), overtime pay, breaks, bonuses, travel time, commissions, hours of work, “on call” work – or any other form of work, compensation, or benefits under federal or state law. The federal law applicable to employees around the country is called the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). In addition to the FLSA, employees are also protected by state specific wage and hour laws, depending on where they live and work.
