You deserve to be paid appropriately for the work you do. Federal, state, and local laws protect your right to a minimum wage, paid overtime, and fair wages. But far too often employers cut corners. When they do, the employment lawyers at the Employment Law Firm of Pennsylvania are there to fight for you.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act of 1968 set minimum wage standards, controls overtime payments, record keeping, and youth employment. They protect hourly and some salaried employees, making sure they are paid appropriately for the work they do. It applies to private and federal, state, and local public employees.
State and federal laws set the lowest amount an employer can pay you to do your work. If you receive tips or work for commission, your base salary can be reduced. This can be a recipe for trouble. If your employer does not keep careful records, you could end up being short-changed.
Under federal and Pennsylvania law, employers must pay non-exempt employees at least 1 1/2 times their regular wages any time they work more than 40 hours in a week. Some employers ignore these rules, or their policies will not count time on premises, but not on the clock. All of this could leave you with unpaid overtime. The Employment Law Firm of Pennsylvania's employment law team can help you file a complaint and make sure you are paid for all of your work.
When an employer shorts you wages or delays payment, you have been the victim of wage theft. Federal and State law allows you to hire an experienced Employment Lawyer to get those back wages paid.
Your sex shouldn't affect how much you are paid for your work. Under Pennsylvania law, women and men must be paid the same wages for the same work. If you make less than your coworkers of the other gender, contact the Employment Law Group to get paid the full amount you deserve.
You don't have to tolerate underpaid wages or unpaid overtime. Contact the Employment Law Firm of Pennsylvania today to start your complaint and get the income you deserve.
