File an Unpaid Overtime Claim in Indianapolis, Indiana
According to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), an employer must compensate a non-exempt employee if they work over 40 hours a week. This worker is owed one and a half times their regular hourly rate of pay. Even those who are paid a salary are entitled to overtime remuneration.
Restrictions and Exceptions
The FLSA does not cover certain employees in positions of leadership, such as an administrator or manager. Doctors, teachers and lawyers are also usually exempt. Whether or not you are an exception is determined by your responsibilities, not your title. If you are called a manager but do not actually supervise people, you may still be entitled to overtime pay.
Filing Your Claim
If you have not been paid what you are due, a claim should be filed under the FLSA. It must be within two years from the date the pay was earned. If your employer intentionally violated the law, the statute of limitations extends to three years and they may be required to compensate for double the owed amount. It is illegal for a business owner to demote or fire an employee who is asserting their right to overtime remuneration.
