Office Manager at a Local Plumbing Business Recovered $12,000 for Unpaid Overtime Wages
In this case, the client worked an excess of forty (40) hours per week over the course of her employment. The client was not paid time and a half for her overtime hours. Rather, the employer only paid the client straight time for all hours worked. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), most employees who work more than 40 hours per week are entitled to overtime (time and one-half the regular rate of pay). Successful plaintiffs who recover overtime compensation are also entitled to receive an equal amount for liquidated damages, plus reasonable attorney’s fees and litigation expenses.
