Overtime Violation

The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires that employers pay at least the federal minimum wage, as well as “time and a half” overtime pay for employees working more than 40 hours a week. If an employer fails to meet these requirements, workers may be entitled to receive back pay for the wages they were wrongly denied. There are harsh penalties for employers that violate laws governing overtime, and The QT Law Firm is here to ensure that you get every cent you are entitled to, along with any additional compensation allowable under the Fair Labor Standards Act as well as any applicable state laws.

Employment Discrimination

In 2017, it is evident that there are still many employers who discriminate in the workplace based on one of the protected classes. The protected classes include Age, Race, Gender, Religion, Pregnancy, Disability, and Military Status. There are certain state and federal laws that employers must follow. These laws include but are not limited to:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
  • Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA)
  • The Equal Pay Act
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations

The QT Law Firm also assists individuals harmed at work due to an employer retaliating against them for exercising a legal right. Retaliation refers to when an employee is treated poorly, demoted, or fired in response to the employee’s protected actions.  For example, if you were retaliated against for filing a worker’s compensation claim, this may be grounds to pursue additional damages.
