What Warrants the Need for a Reliable FLSA Lawyer?

What Warrants the Need for a Reliable FLSA LawyerWhen an employer breaks guidelines of overtime pay or minimum wages set out by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) it may warrant the need for a reliable Washington DC FLSA lawyer that employees in DC and the surrounding areas can rely on.

When an employee suffers from FLSA violations it can be critical to enlist the help of a lawyer to protect their rights and to seek the compensation they deserve. Employee laws are complex and it is not advised that employees try to pursue these kinds of claims without the help of a lawyer who is experienced at successfully helping their clients hold unlawful employers accountable for their actions.

For many people, the idea of telling their employer that they are doing something wrong is daunting enough, but the idea of filing a legal claim and potentially taking them to court is positively overwhelming. When an employee is still trying to keep and do their job during this process, it can feel incredibly uncomfortable. If you work in the Washington DC area, having a reliable Washington, DC FLSA lawyer on your side can help you to feel less alone. When you have a good lawyer on your team, they will guide and protect you throughout this difficult but important process.

FLSA Violations

Fortunately, many employers are good and honest people but the unfortunate reality is that there are ones who are not. If you are one of the unfortunate employees of a dishonest employer, there are many different ways that your employer may be trying to nickel and dime you on your pay. More common violations of FLSA laws that often warrant the help of a lawyer include but are not limited to:

Overtime Not paying overtime of at least your hourly rate plus half of that, for every overtime hour you work.

Misclassifying Employers often misclassify employees as, independent contractors, in order to avoid having to pay overtime wages.

Exempt and Non-Exempt Some employees are under the misunderstanding that they are exempt and can’t get overtime pay if they are paid a flat salary or have a job title such as supervisor or manager. It is the law that non-exempt employees are supposed to get overtime pay.

Off the Clock Work Employers are not supposed to ask employees to do unpaid work while they are off the clock.

Retaliation An employer is not supposed to do anything that could be construed as retaliative if they find out about an employee has complained about FLSA violations.

If your employer has committed any of the above, there is a good chance that you are entitled to compensation and will need a trustworthy Washington, DC FLSA lawyer. There are many other FLSA violations that are not mentioned here. If you think that your employer is not paying you fairly or violating the FLSA in other ways, it may be time to call a reputable lawyer now.

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.
