Wage Hour Law

In Florida, it is illegal for an employer to deny you overtime pay if you are a non-exempt employee. Employees must receive overtime pay for hours worked in excess of 40 in a workweek at a rate not less than time and one-half their regular rate of pay.

If an employer in Florida is violating the law by not paying you the overtime wages you rightfully earned, contact the Gefen Law Firm immediately, as you may be entitled to up to two years of back pay!! (or up to three years where the violation was made knowingly or willfully by the employer) as well as payment of penalties and attorneys fees and costs. At the Gefen Law Firm, we can assist with the following areas of wage and hour law:

  1. Unpaid Overtime
