Ensuring Fair Compensation for Florida Employees

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.

Understanding Overtime Regulations 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 Overtime in Florida?

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

Report Unpaid Wages: Steps for Florida Employees

Florida employees who have not been paid by their employer have several options for reporting the issue.

  1. Contact your employer: To inquire about the issue and to find out when you will receive payment, contact your employer before taking any legal action.
  2. Keep records: Keep records of the hours you worked, the pay rate, and any other relevant information to support your claim. This can include pay stubs, time sheets, and any communication you have had with your employer about your wages.
  3. File a wage claim: If your employer fails to pay your wages or does not respond to your inquiries, you can file a wage claim with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity's (DEO) Division of Workforce Services.
  4. Contact a lawyer: If you have not been paid for a significant amount of time or if your employer has a history of wage theft, you may want to consider contacting a lawyer who can help you understand your rights and options.
  5. Report to the authorities: You can also report your employer to the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor or to the Florida Attorney General's office if you believe that your employer is intentionally violating wage and hour laws.

If you are experiencing wage theft, it is important to take action as soon as possible. There are time limits for filing a wage claim in Florida, so it is important to act quickly.
