Customer Service Representative at Pool Service Business Recovered $14,000 in Unpaid Overtime Wages
A customer service representative at a local pool service business recovered $14,000 in unpaid overtime wages. In this case, the client worked an excess of forty (40) hours per week over the course of her employment. In an effort to cut labor costs, the employer not only shaved hours off of employees’ time cards, but also only paid its employees overtime when the employee exceeded 80 hours within a two-week period. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires non-exempt employees to be paid time and one half their regular hourly rate for all hours worked more than 40 per workweek (a 7-day period). This is an illegal pay scheme in violation of the FLSA. If you believe that you have been deprived of regular and/or overtime wages that were stolen from you by your employer, call attorney Robert S.
