Going After Employers Who Violate Wage And Overtime Laws

If your employer is paying you less than the minimum wage, you should be aware that you may be able to file a legal action against your employer to receive the wages to which you are legally entitled. The minimum wage, which is the minimum hourly rate employers must pay certain classes of employees, is $7.25 per hour. Call an employment law attorney at Shay, Santee, Kelhart & Deschler LLC in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, today if your employer is not paying you at least the minimum wage. Both state and federal law protects your right to receive the statutorily mandated minimum wage.Additionally, many employees are eligible for overtime pay, which is equal to one and one-half times the rate of normal pay, if they work more than 40 hours per week. Certain employees are exempt from the overtime wage requirements, such as executives, certain administrative personnel, professionals and computer technology employees.
