Employee Misclassification Lawyer
In Florida, it is common for employers to misclassify their employees as exempt or nonexempt. Unfortunately for those employees, when they are misclassified, they are no longer eligible for overtime pay and hourly limits, so employers benefit illegally at the expense of their employees. Employers may also not pay overtime that is due to an employee based upon the hours worked by him or her.

Florida Employee Misclassification Attorney
There are certain categories of employees who are exempt from overtime. Managers and supervisors are often exempt from this type of pay, as well as lawyers, doctors and other professionals. Other employees are supposed to get overtime if they work more than 40 hours a week. In most cases, disputes happen when employers intentionally misclassify an employee in order to avoid paying overtime.
Our firm will look at pay stubs, time sheets and other information to determine whether an employer is wrongfully classifying you as exempt or is holding back in paying you what you deserve.
