Clearwater Overtime & Minimum Wage Attorneys

Get What You’re Owed by an Employer near Tampa Bay

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Florida Constitution, Florida employers are required to pay a minimum wage of $8.56 per hour and time-and-a-half for all hours over 40 to all non-exempt employees.

At Kwall Barack Nadeau PLLC, our firm pursues the rights and interests of employees involved in disputes with their employers over wages. These laws are complicated, with many exemptions and industry-specific regulations and these disputes require an attorney who specializes in wage and hour laws, like the attorneys at our firm.

How Do Employers Violate Labor Laws?

Some employers will look for unethical approaches to avoid paying their full/part time employees the salary they are due for their overtime hours. They will use the following methods:

  • Setting hourly and salary wages too low
  • Misclassifying employees as exempt
  • Misclassifying employees as independent contractors (or 1099 workers)
  • Altering time records
  • Making improper deductions from employee pay
  • Failing to accurately pay tipped employees
  • Paying straight time for overtime hours
  • Failing to pay for travel time, compensate breaks, and employee training

If you have been denied your fair pay for your overtime hours, do not hesitate to call Kwall Barack Nadeau. Our experienced employment lawyers will make sure you know your rights. Call us today to review your case and schedule a consultation!

If any of these sound familiar to your situation at work, reach out to an overtime and minimum wage attorney in Clearwater from Kwall Barack Nadeau PLLC. Contact us online or call (727) 202-5840 to learn about how we can help.

We Can Help Clients Pursue Class Actions

Employees who prove that they were not paid the proper minimum wage and overtime, may be entitled to an equal amount in liquidated damages, effectively doubling their recovery. We are often able to bring these cases as class actions or collective actions, which allows us to seek compensation for all affected employees.

We have previously represented several classes of the following with claims of unpaid minimum wage and overtime:

  • Servers and bartenders
  • Retail workers
  • Fast food employees
  • Student registered nurse anesthetists
  • Call center employees

If you think you’re not the only employee who’s been taken advantage of, Kwall Barack Nadeau PLLC can help. Our overtime and minimum wage attorneys in Clearwater are experienced at handling class actions that may be necessary in situations such as yours.
