Seeking remuneration for unpaid overtime income in Florida

One of the worst areas of employment law abuse relates to overtime. Federal law requires that employers compensate their employees with extra pay if they are required to work above and beyond a 40-hour workweek. Federal overtime standards are clear and specific and if an employee fails to receive appropriate compensation in this regard, he or she can enforce the law in court.

Every overtime case is different, and some employees may not fall under the protection of overtime laws, so it is important to have a potential case reviewed by a competent and knowledgeable overtime law attorney to determine whether federal statutes apply to it. The state of Florida also has overtime laws, and therefore, Florida employers must adhere to both state and federal standards and employees may be able to assert their rights under one or both sets of laws.

In some cases, employees and employers also have additional agreements with one another regarding things like overtime pay for weekends, nights and holidays. Therefore, it is important to also review an employee's employment agreement to determine whether those terms will also support his or her claims for remuneration relating to unpaid overtime income.

At the Law Offices of Gary A. Costales, PA, we have helped numerous Miami employees assert their legal rights under state and federal overtime laws. We have helped them get the money they were owed. In these types of cases, it is also possible to seek money to pay for attorneys' fees, court costs and other costs associated with their legal matter. The bottom line is this: We know you work hard at your job and we will fight to ensure that you are fairly paid for your contribution.
