Violations of Federal employment laws take money out of your wallet.

Improper Job Classification

Did you know that your employer is required to pay you 1.5 times your hourly rate for every hour you work in excess of forty hours in a week? While there are some exceptions to this Federal law, these exceptions are based on the type of work performed by the employee not the job title or whether the employee is “salaried.”  Many employers will label an employee as a manager in order to get an exemption from the overtime requirement. However, if the employee does not have any managerial duties, the exemption is invalid and the employee is entitled to overtime. If you have been required to work more than forty hours a week but aren’t being paid overtime, you could be entitled to back pay at overtime rates. Call Birmingham Employment Attorney, Adrian B. Dunning today for a free consultation.
