FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT & COLLECTIVE/CLASS ACTION


Fair Labor Standards in Weston, Liberty & Kansas City, MO
Employers can be very creative in determining which employees are exempt from overtime pay and those who are non-exempt. They find ways to avoid counting time for putting on a uniform or showering before or after a shift is complete. Many times, this creativity violates the law and denies hardworking Kansas City residents the compensation they deserve.

At the Employee Rights Law Firm, we have the legal experience, resources and knowledge of the Fair Labor Standards Act to not only represent you, but co-workers denied what is rightfully theirs.

Misclassification can be costly to you over the long run, as can being denied the right to be paid while "doffing and donning" a uniform. Simply put, they are also violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Contact an attorney at 816-474-4600 or toll free at 877-287-2162 if you think you have a claim.
Contact our lawyers if you have been denied overtime pay that you have earned.

THE FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT PROTECTS YOU


You are protected under wage and hour laws, regardless of your employer's claims. He or she may claim that an employee is exempt from overtime due to a management title, but the responsibilities are anything but supervisory in nature. An employer can coerce an employee not to clock in to get paid all the hours he or she worked. Employees who require a uniform are denied time to change before and after they perform their job.

Helping Clients with Collective and Class Action Claims

At the Employee Rights Law Firm — Law Offices of Mark A. Jess, L.L.C., we often find that if one employee is a victim of a Fair Labor Standards Act violation, other staff members have been victimized as well. That requires a collective action where employees can opt in or class action where a notice is sent to others who may have been denied pay.
