  • Minimum Wage

    The FLSA stipulates the minimum wage is $7.25 per hour, and $2.13 per hour tipped for employees making more than $30 a month in tips. This minimum wage cannot be affected by a tip pool, paying for your uniform, or any other reduction. In short, you must be making $7.25 an hour.

  • Overtime

    For non-exempt employees, every hour over 40 hours worked each week must be compensated at the rate of time-and-a-half your normal rate, according to the FLSA. This is accrued on a workweek basis, defined as seven consecutive 24-hour periods. The FLSA does not require overtime pay for work on Saturday, Sunday, or holidays.

  • Record Requirements

    To this end, employees are required to keep records related to an employee’s identity, address, and specifics of employment including hours worked, how the work is paid for by the employer, and the wages paid each pay period. If your employer isn’t keeping these records or is keeping them poorly, that might be a warning sign.

    Our attorneys in Alabama are well-versed in FLSA standards and what’s required of employers when it comes to compensating their employees. Fill out our free, no-risk case evaluation today.
