Federal and state wage and hour laws exist to help employees receive fair pay and to protect them from wage theft. If you are a non-exempt employee, you must be paid minimum wages in accordance with federal and state laws, and also be paid overtime in the amount of one and a half times your normal hourly rate for any hours worked in excess of 40 in a workweek. Many employers and employees mistakenly believe that the payment of a salary and/or a commission automatically exempts employees from the payment of overtime and minimum wages. This is not necessarily true. To be exempt, your job position must meet both payment and job duty requirements that are set forth under federal and state laws.
In addition to overtime and minimum wage laws, most states have laws that address wage disputes, permissible wage deductions, the timing of paychecks (including final paychecks), and vacation pay.
Employers regularly violate federal and state laws dealing with overtime, minimum wages, tips, vacation pay and payroll deductions. If you believe that you are not being paid correctly, please fill out our online consultation form or contact us at 317-743-0614 for a free case evaluation.
