FLSA and Retaliatory Discharge Lawsuits

FLSA claims:These are claims which are brought by employees for unpaid wages, which arise usually from either a misclassification of the employee as exempt vs. non-exempt or a failure to pay the employee minimum wage and/or overtime wages as required by state and federal law. These types of claims can be brought against not only the company, but personally against the employee’s manager or the owners of the company. These types of claims are very serious and require close analysis of the facts and circumstances of each employee and your company’s policies during the employee’s employment.

Retaliatory discharge claims: These are claims which are brought by employees usually in the context of an unpaid wages claim and/or wrongful termination of the employee for wrongful purposes such as complaining about the company’s failure to pay the employee his or her wages, overtime or complaining about the company’s violation of a local, state or federal law. These types of claims can be brought against not only the company, but personally against the employee’s manager or the owners of the company whom made the decision to discharge the employee. These types of claims are very serious and require close analysis of the facts and circumstances surrounding the termination of the employee and the company’s policies and procedures for termination of employees in general.
