Many employees in management, administrative, and professional positions may be paid a salary without overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”). However, employers frequently violate the FLSA by improperly docking the pay of these “salaried” employees.
Frequently, employers dock the pay of their “salaried” employees by the hour or part of a day for absences, tardiness, or other time off work, without paying overtime for hours over 40. Employees whose pay is deducted by less than a full day are typically considered hourly employees under the law and are entitled to overtime pay at time-and-a-half for hours they work over 40 in a workweek.
Do you receive a “salary,” but your pay is docked by the hour or part of a day? You may be entitled to overtime pay.
We have successfully represented tens of thousands of workers all across the country in overtime cases, including “salaried” workers whose pay has been improperly docked. We work on a contingency, meaning we only get paid if we get a recovery for our clients. To learn more about our Wage & Overtime practice, click here.
