FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT
Violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) can occur in a variety of contexts.
Perhaps the most widespread violation is when employees are asked to perform off-the-clock work. If the off the clock work results in the deprivation of overtime wages, then a violation of the FLSA has occurred.
Similarly, employees who are required to put on their work gear off-the-clock may have a claim for unpaid overtime wages. These are called "donning and doffing" claims."
In the restaurant industry, many employers improperly utilize tip credits or tip pools.
These are just a few examples of how an employer might violate the FLSA. If you suspect your employer has violated the FLSA, then don't hesitate to contact us. We're here to help!
COMMON LAW BREACH OF CONTRACT AND UNJUST ENRICHMENT
In addition to statutory claims available, the facts of your case may give rise to common law claims under a theory of liability for breach of contract or unjust enrichment. At National Wage Law we will carefully review the facts of your case to ascertain whether these theories are applicable to your case. Often times, a claim for breach of contract can be sustained even when there is no written agreement with the employer.
