We Will Fight To Get You Back Pay For Improper Overtime ‘Bank’ Or Comp Pay
Far too many businesses look for ways to avoid paying overtime. It may seem like an even trade-off to get a few hours off work in the future for putting in time today. Unfortunately, your paycheck and financial stability are not well-served when your employer skirts the law. This is especially true when an employer regularly asks for extra hours and refuses to pay you for your time.
You Deserve To Get Paid For Your Overtime
Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA) laws make it clear how overtime compensation must be paid, and the overtime rate a worker is to receive. The law is simple to understand, but is often ignored. Employers are not allowed to violate FLSA laws by having a comp time policy other than paying money for overtime worked. If you have been asked to work overtime in exchange for future time off, or additional vacation time or compensation other than money, you may have back pay coming to you.
