Overtime and Wage Disputes

Posted in Overtime and Wage Disputes

Most wage and hour or overtime claims are covered under the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act or other Florida state regulations. These rules change frequently, and contain many exceptions, depending on the situation. Therefore, it is very important that you consult with Vukelja Law to assess your claim. Whether based on state or federal law, however, successful wage and hour claims generally allow an employee to recover double back pay, plus their attorney’s fees and court costs.

When facing an overtime dispute, or if your employer has misclassified you as an exempt employee, or if you were forced to work off the clock, Vukelja Law can help you recover your back pay and other damages. If similarly situated employees do not receive the pay they deserve due to systematic employer violations of wage and hour violations, we may handle the case as a class action.
