Unpaid Overtime Attorney
Many Florida employers ask their employees to work off the clock for such activities as preparation time, wait time, travel time and for being on call. Such unpaid work time is illegal under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
If your employer is asking you to work off the clock, employment law attorney William Julien can analyze the facts of your situation and advise you of your rights under Florida and federal laws. You may be entitled to double compensation for your unpaid work time as well as overtime if you worked more than 40 hours in a week or 10 hours in a day. Your employer may also be responsible for your attorney fees.

What Is Unpaid Work Time?
As a nonexempt employee (in other words, as an employee who is covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act), you are entitled to compensation for all work time, including:
- Travel time (except for commuting to and from home)
- Preparation time, such as time putting on your uniform at work, turning on equipment or preparing your work area
- Wait time, which is time spent at work in which you are not free to engage in personal activities
- On call time, which is time spent at home pending a call from your employer to work
If you are not being paid for such off-the-clock work time, employment law attorney William Julien can evaluate your case and help you receive the compensation you deserve.
