  • About 60 hours a week working -I am exempt however the majority 80-90 percent of the time I am doing the work of an hrly worker

    also I see other labor laws in ga being broken..ie employees scheduled 8+ hours and not allowed a break

    Greg’s Answer

    It is very possible that you have been misclassified as exempt and therefore entitled to overtime pay. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the overtime exemptions focus on the employee's "primary duty" which is not necessarily the one performed the majority of the time. However, the law is fairly complex. You should consult with an attorney experienced at handling FLSA cases in GA to determine your rights. I would be happy to offer you a free consultation by phone.

    Greg’s Answer

    I am an employment lawyer licensed in GA. It is unlawful to force an employee to resign or terminate her because she is pregnant. If an employee is terminated due to pregnancy this would also not be a valid reason to disqualify her from receiving unemployment benefits. However, if she resigns this may make it more difficult. I recommend you consult with an attorney, such as myself, experienced at handling pregnancy discrimination cases in GA. I would be happy to offer you a free initial consultation by phone.

    Greg’s Answer

    Employers with 15 or more employees have a duty to, upon request, provide reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities. Absent certain exceptions, if the employer fails to provide such accommodations, the employee would have a claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act. In Georgia, such a claim must be initiated by filing a Charge of Discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within 180 days of the unlawful act. If you would like to further discuss this, I would be happy to offer you a free initial consultation by phone.
