Unpaid Overtime Attorneys in Chicago

Getting You the Compensation You Deserve

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and various Illinois statutes regulate overtime (OT) pay, commissions, and other monetary compensation for nonexempt employees. Some employers will try to sidestep the FLSA by giving employees false titles, such as a manager or executive, to make it appear that they are exempt. In reality, the job duties and structure are that of a nonexempt employee and as a result, the employee should be paid according to FLSA regulations.

If you believe you have been denied overtime pay, the lawyers at Edelman Combs Latturner & Goodwin, LLC will use the FLSA and corresponding Illinois laws to protect your employee rights. We fight hard to help you obtain the favorable resolution you are seeking.

FLSA Violations

The FLSA is in place to protect employees’ rights and ensure that all employed individuals are fairly compensated for their work. When an employer violates the FLSA, they are susceptible to the penalties outlined in the Act.

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act:

  • A nonexempt employee is entitled to receive one and half times the normal pay for any hours worked over the standard 40 hours/week
  • An employer must pay a nonexempt employee at least the minimum wage

Sometimes it can be difficult to know if your employer has actually violated the FLSA. At Edelman Combs Latturner & Goodwin, LLC, we have extensive experience handling these types of cases. Our Chicago employment law attorneys will review employment contracts, hour log sheets, pay stubs, and any other documents that can help us determine if regulations were violated. From there, we can determine what legal action needs to be taken and help you collect the compensation you are legally entitled to receive.

If you think your employer violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by denying OT or other compensation, contact us right away. Call (312) 626-3585 to schedule a free consultation.
