Protecting Florida Workers From Wage Violations
As an employee, you deserve to be fairly compensated. Your employer should comply with minimum wage and overtime laws. They should observe policies or contracts related to bonuses or commissions and properly classify all workers. If your employer has violated any law in relation to your compensation, you have the right to take legal action.
Your employer may owe you overtime pay, have inappropriately classified you as an independent contractor, or even forced you to work off the clock. In all of these cases, our team of wage & hour lawyers in Tampa at Justice Litigation Association can help you.

How Does Overtime Work in Florida
Employees are protected under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). It establishes standards for minimum wage, overtime pay, and more. In the state of Florida, employees typically earn overtime after working 40 hours in a workweek. Hours worked over the 40-hour workweek are typically considered overtime. When an employee works overtime, most may be compensated at a pay rate that is one and half times their regular rate.
Who is Exempt From FLSA?
Unfortunately, not all employees are entitled to overtime compensation. Below is a list of classes of employees that are not entitled to overtime:
- Most truck drivers
- Most railroad workers
- Outside sales
- Salary Level Test
- Supervisory employee with management as their primary duty
If you believe that you are entitled to overtime pay, your employer is refusing to pay you overtime, or if you have questions about overtime law in general, do not hesitate to reach out to the experienced Tampa wage and hour lawyers at Justice Litigation Association.
