Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

FLSA law firm VirginiaWhen employees in Virginia and many of the surrounding states are taken advantage of by their employer, they may be in need of a FLSA law firm Virginia employees and their families recommend.

FLSA stands for the Fair Labor Standards Act that was enacted in 1938 in order to protect employees from unfair and unethical employer practices; and to set standards at the federal level that employers in all U.S. states need to comply with.

The FLSA provides a federal minimum wage, overtime guidelines, and protective child labor laws even though many states have laws that are of more benefit to employees than what the federal laws provide for them. The FLSA provides protection for non-exempt employees even though exempt employees are protected under different sets of laws.

Compensation for Breaches of the FLSA

When an employer does not comply with the rules set out by the FLSA, an employee may be able to file a civil claim against the employer in order to try to get compensation for the wages that they think the employer owes them. This is often done more efficiently with the help of an experienced FLSA law firm, compared to when employees try to do this on their own.

Even though it may seem like it will cost an employee too much money or just money they do not have to hire a lawyer, many lawyers who are licensed to practice labor law will take FLSA cases on a contingency basis. This means that the lawyer will only get paid if their client (the employee/plaintiff) wins a settlement.

A reputable FLSA lawyer who is licensed to practice in Virginia and in the surrounding states, should be upfront with a potential FLSA client about what percentage of the settlement the lawyer will be entitled to if there is one, and any other fees that the client may be held responsible for when the claim is resolved. These terms should be laid out clearly for both potential outcomes: if the client wins his or her case and gets an award, or if the client loses and does not receive any money from the employer.

How the FLSA Protects Employees

The FLSA protects employees at the federal level in several different ways including, setting a minimum wage, setting a standard for overtime pay, requiring employees to display the requirements of the FLSA and to keep employee time and pay records, and protecting minor children from employment in jobs and conditions that may be detrimental to the child’s health or well-being.

Virginia State Labor Laws

State labor laws differ from state to state even though many states have similar or the same laws. Neither the FLSA nor Virginia state laws regulate or define benefit packages, vacation days or regular days of rest. The FLSA does set guidelines for breaks for nursing mothers as does the Virginia and many other states’ laws.

If you are or were employed by an unfair or unethical employer in the state of Virginia, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with an experienced FLSA lawyer who is licensed to practice in Virginia and the surrounding states.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
