Your Employer Is Required to Pay the Wages You Have Earned

Philadelphia’s Wage & Hour Lawyer Helps You Recover Wages Wrongfully Withheld

Congress passed the Fair Labor Standards Act in 1938 (“FLSA”) to provide for a federal minimum wage and ensure overtime is paid at least at time and a half for all non-exempt employees who work more than 40 hours in a given work week. Although there are several exemptions to the FLSA, such as those for so-called Executive, Administrative, and Professional employees, they may be (and frequently are) abused or incorrectly applied. Individuals who have wrongfully been denied the wages they are entitled to under the FLSA may recover the wages owed, an amount equal to the wages owed as liquidated damages, as well as their costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees.

Although the FLSA remains the law of the land to this day, many states have added additional protections regarding the payment of wages. These include wage payment collection laws that provide an alternate means of recovery when an individual’s wages have been wrongfully withheld. Although the laws vary from state to state, in some cases an individual may recover double or triple the amount owed to him or her, as well as his or her costs and attorneys’ fees.

If you believe your employer has wrongfully withheld the wages owed to you, it is important that you consult with experienced legal counsel regarding these issues. The Garner Firm represents employees who have been denied the wages they have earned in violation of state and federal laws. Contact us today for your free consultation.
