The FLSA exists primarily to protect employee’s rights to certain wages and overtime standards. Since the conditions under which employers are held responsible for the FLSA, most employers are required to uphold them and therefore most employees are protected by it. Under it, employees are guaranteed a minimum wage and overtime pay that allow them to maintain a level of health, effectiveness and well-being.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) provides a number of protections for Minnesota workers. It established the minimum wage, working hours rights, and overtime payment rules. The Fair Labor Standards Act provides a number of rights for Minnesota employees related to work hours and employment standards.
The attorneys of JUX are experienced in representing employees who have had their rights denied by employers. They mistreated Minnesota employees get the financial compensation they deserve under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
The Fair Labor Standards Act provides that employees who work over 40 hours per week must be paid time and a half. Some types of employment are “exempt” from these overtime laws. But just because an employer says the employee is “exempt” doesn’t mean the employee actually is “exempt.” In other words, the employee may still be owed time and a half.
“Exempt” under the Fair Labor Standards Act is determined by weighing various factors. Our attorneys can help analyze your situation to determine whether your job should be deemed “exempt.”
