Birmingham Wage And Hour Attorney

Serving Workers With Wage And Hour Claims Throughout Alabama

Under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employers are required to follow regulations governed by the U.S. Department of Labor.

FLSA regulations cover broad issues such as:

  • Federal minimum wage
  • Overtime pay
  • Provisions of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Employment classification standards for exempt (salary) and nonexempt (hourly) pay

Won't it cost more in legal fees than the case is worth?
If you are involved in a paycheck dispute, take the time to call us to discuss your circumstances. Chances are, if your employer is violating your FLSA rights, your co-workers are being cheated out of pay, too. We offer a free consultation and handle FLSA litigation cases on a contingency basis. We advance the cost of preparing and settling your case. The cost of litigation will be included in the settlement or jury verdict your employer pays.In addition, the FLSA allows for the recovery of attorneys fees under some circumstances.
