With all due respect to the other attorneys who have posted answers to your question, the issue is one of overtime compensation. Intentionally misclassification of employees as ICs is used by many small businesses as a way to (attempt to) skirt the FLSA and applicable state wage guarantees. In other words, it is a cover for wage theft. We need more information about the number of hours worked and how compensation is made (hourly v. salary v. commissions v. bonuses, etc).See question
I live in Michigan. I'm a salaried non-exempt employee, making $410 per week. This is based on a 36 hour work week, therefore I'm making $11.39 per hour. Next Saturday, my boss wants to send me to a training seminar out of town that goes from 8am-...
Based upon the facts that you stated, your rights are being violated. A salary is not a valid form of compensation for overtime unless it is at least $455.00 per week. Therefore anytime that you work more than 40 hours in a week, you're entitled to overtime.

The first test for whether payment by salary is legal is to ask if the salary is paid in full even in weeks in which you work fewer than 40 hours. If they are violating that rule, then you may very well have a claim for unpaid overtime.See question
I have a case that the DOL is hiring for me. My old employer failed to pay me overtime, and owes me a few thousand dollars. The DOL already investigated and assessed the amount, but since my old employer is not cooperating, it was sent to litigati...
If the DOL has not filed a lawsuit or entered into a binding tolling agreement, your claim may be in danger. You need to get on the phone with a wage and hour attorney IMMEDIATELY.See question
Hello! I am having a bit of an issue with my employer. I work at a nationally recognized apartment complex. As a benefit of my employment my rent is discounted and paid through working. I had received my W2 for 2013 and in the year 2013 I...
The answer depends upon whether the apartment that you live in is primarily for the benefit of your employer. It is a question that can't be answered without meeting with an experienced attorney in that area of the law.
Also, it depends upon how long you have been there/will be there, in terms of continued work.See question
my son was given to my mother in law by the courts due to at the time bad choice and care. now me and my wife have had another child and both of them have been with us 5 yrs my wife is now ill and me and her no longer working out as husband/ wife...
If the initial guardianship was based upon your consent, not a finding of danger to the child, then a case that's now about two years old from the Arkansas Court of Appeals would suggest that you can get your child back.
You MUST have an attorney.See question
My sister is claiming that I am on meth and is going to have a hair folical test done on me. First,. is this legal, I am 56 years old, single, with no children.
It sounds like you haven't given us enough facts. Based upon what you have said, the answer is clearly No. If there is no lawsuit between in which drug use allegations are an issue, then there is no judge to order testing.See question

If you are in Arkansas, there only a few attorneys that you can use to deal with this situation who are competent in this area of the law, in my opinion. I am not one of them, to be sure. Be very selective, and get the best, ASAP.See question
Can my wages be up for garnishment?
Medical debts have a shorter time period in which the creditor must sue to collect. And there are other potential defenses as well. Hire an attorney JUST AS SOON AS YOU RECEIVE A SUMMONS or you risk having your pay garnished beginning between 60 and 120 days after you receive the Summons, usually.See question
All i have to prove I tried sseing my son is Abunch of emails. Is that sufficient?
Perhaps only potential criminal incarceration is more important than your parental rights. If someone has filed a petition to adopt your child, you MUST get an attorney ASAP. You may have far more evidence than you think.See question
