FLSA Lawyer Washington DC

Fair Labor Standards Act – Washington, DC

If you are in an unfortunate and uncomfortable situation where your employer is not paying you what s/he is supposed to, you may be in need of a FLSA lawyer Washington DC employees are fortunate to have available to them.

As a law firm that is qualified to uphold the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), at Cohen & Cohen we advocate aggressively for our clients when their employers are not paying them the wages they are entitled to.

The Fair Labor Standards Act enacted minimum wage requirements, overtime pay standards, and youth employment rules. It affects all businesses, both large and small. The FLSA mandates that if an employee works in excess of 40 a week, his/her employer must compensate him/her time and a half for each extra hour unless the employee is exempt. If you have worked in excess of 40 hours a week and have not received appropriate overtime pay, you should consult a reputable FLSA lawyer Washington DC residents can recommend.

Sometimes employers mistakenly believe that an employee is exempt from receiving overtime. For an employee to be considered exempt, each of the following must be met:

  • Employee must be paid a salary (except for computer workers). They may not be an hourly worker.
  • Employee must earn at least $455.00 per week.
  • Employee’s job must consist of specific duties as specified by the FLSA. These specific duties include, among other things, executive duties, management duties, and duties of highly compensated employees.
  • A rule of thumb is that exempt positions must be non-manual roles that involve general business operations.

If you are an employee and are unsure if your position is exempt, contact a FLSA lawyer Washington DC is proud to call one of their own. And if at any point you have been injured on the job, seek out personal injury lawyers Washington DC trusts.

In addition to regulating overtime pay, the FLSA also mandates that all employees must receive a minimum wage of at least $7.25 per hour. Sometimes employers ask employees to complete work-related tasks “off the clock.” This is a violation of the FLSA. If your employer requires you to complete work “off the clock”, contact an FLSA lawyer to determine if you have a claim. For a reputable FLSA lawyer Washington DC employees are lucky to have on their side, contact Cohen & Cohen

The only exception to these minimum wage rules are employees who receive tips. Those employees must receive pay of at least $2.13 per hour. The FLSA requires that an employee’s wages and tips must equal at least $7.25 an hour. Many tipped employees do not realize this and do not receive adequate pay. If an employee is not receiving a total of $7.25 per hour after combining tips and $2.13 an hour, it is considered inadequate pay. If you are a tipped employee and your wages and tips do not equal at least minimum wage, call an FLSA lawyer Washington DC inadequately paid employees can trust.

If you believe your employer has violated the FLSA by not compensating you appropriately, you need not fear retaliation for raising the issue with your employer or reaching out to an FSLA lawyer. In fact, employers that fire employees or even disrupt the workplace as a result of pending FLSA claims are in violation of the FLSA and may be required to pay damages as a result. The first step in determining if there has been a violation and you have a case is to contact a Washington, DC FLSA lawyer right away.

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. Siri Palm 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.
