Employment Law

Some of the most common legal disputes against employers in the area of employment law involve wages and hours worked. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) employees have the right to earn a specific hourly wage for certain types of work. The hours worked are also regulated by the FLSA, which puts limits on how many hours a person may work in a single day and has provisions governing overtime. Furthermore, FLSA directs employers regarding employee classification, independent contractor status, and payment of tips based on such classifications.
