Overtime wage claims under the FLSA

Posted by attorney Mitchell Feldman

Overtime wage claims are very fact detailed. When an employer classifies an employee as salaried and exempt from overtime, or labels the employee as a manager, those titles and manner of compensating the employee do not control whether the employee is entitled to overtime wages. Each position must clearly satisfy an exemption under the FLSA. Moreover, the FLSA prohibits retaliation against any employee asking for overtime or claiming wages for overtime.
