Have you been unfairly compensated for your work? Have you been denied fair wages or overtime pay? Has your manager interfered with the tips you receive as a tipped employee? Has an employer tried to pay you in compensatory time instead of a cash wage? If you are in any of these situations fighting for fair wages Pennsylvania attorney Thomas More Holland can help. Mr. Holland, the founder of The Law Offices of Thomas More Holland, has significant experience helping Pennsylvania workers like you to ensure you are receiving the compensation you deserve under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
The Fair Labor Standards Act establishes the fair wages Pennsylvania residents, as well as workers throughout the United States, can expect from their employers. Some of these include:
- As of July 2009, most workers are entitled to a minimum wage of at least $7.25/ hour, although certain exemptions do apply.
- For workers who are tipped, they must be paid a minimum cash wage of $2.13/ hour. If their tips plus the cash wage at the end of the day do not equal the minimum hourly wage of $7.25 stated above, the employer must make up the difference.
- After 40 hours of work in a workweek, overtime pay at a time-and-a-half rate is required.
In addition to these important rules, the FLSA also establishes a number of more specific rules about fair wages. On top of that, the state of Pennsylvania has some of its own laws which address other compensation issues, such as break times, tip pooling, and more.
