Certain types of employees may be eligible for overtime compensation if they work in excess of forty hours in any given work-week. Alternatively, certain types of administrative or managerial positions may be exempt from overtime pay. These issues are governed by the Fair Labor Standards Act. At the law office of Mark J. Berkowitz, P.A., our Fort Lauderdale Overtime Compensation Attorneys evaluate potential overtime claims based upon this statute and the associated federal regulations.
Employers frequently fail to pay overtime compensation to those employees who are eligible to receive such pay, pursuant to federal law. This failure or refusal may be intentional on the part of the employer. In other words, an employer can take advantage of the employee’s ignorance of the overtime law and regulations and the applicability of any pertinent exemption. Therefore, it is important for employees to know their rights under the applicable federal statute. The law firm of Mark J. Berkowitz, P.A. can determine the employee’s eligibility for overtime pay and then handle an overtime wage claim, with the goal of achieving a fair recovery with regard to overtime compensation for the individual employee.
