Kissimmee Overtime

Kissimmee is full of thriving businesses, with the tourism, hospitality, and healthcare industries being particularly prevalent in our city. These employers bring jobs and revenue to our city, but there are some unintended negative consequences to this business — namely, the growing issue of wage theft. Labor violations, such as wage theft and the [denial of overtime](/practice-areas/labor-and-employment-lawyers/overtime-attorneys/), are an increasingly common problem in Kissimmee. In 2016, a number of wage theft busts occurred to address instances of reported wage theft, including a staffing agency that was made to pay $133,000 in back wages to more than 800 hotel workers. Despite these wage theft busts, businesses in Kissimmee continue to practice illegal business measures to cut costs and get a leg up on the competition. But it doesn’t need to be this way. If you or someone you loved is a victim of wage theft, [our Kissimmee attorneys](/office-locations/florida/kissimmee/) may be able to help. Fill out our [free, no-risk case evaluation](/free-case-evaluation/) form today to learn what our attorneys can do for you. ## Overtime and Minimum Wage Laws in Kissimmee Florida has [state minimum wage laws](https://www.dol.gov/whd/minwage/america.htm#Florida) that dictate a wage above the federal minimum wage. As of Jan. 1, 2017, our state’s minimum wage is $8.10 per hour. For tipped employees, the minimum wage is $5.08 per hour. Non-exempt employees are entitled to an overtime rate of at least time-and-a-half for all hours worked over 40 per week. This means the overtime minimum wage in Kissimmee — along with the whole of Florida — rests at $12.15 per hour. ## Common Types of Wage Theft in Kissimmee Labor violations that deny a worker their rightful wages take many forms. The most common types of wage theft that workers in Kissimmee may endure include: **Working “Off-The-Clock”:** Some employers may ask workers to do tasks before or after punching out, otherwise known as working “off-the-clock,” which is illegal. Any job duties performed by the worker, even small tasks such as cleaning up, must be paid for. **Illegal Deductions:** This can take the form of making an employee reimburse their employer for shortages in the register, cover the cost of customers who walk out on their bills, and other subtractions from a worker’s paycheck that places their pay below the minimum wage are considered illegal deductions. **Denial of Overtime:** Not paying the overtime rate of time-and-a-half to non-exempt employees who work any hours over 40 per workweek is considered a denial of overtime. **Misclassification:** Employers may misclassify their workers as independent contractors, as opposed to employees, to avoid paying benefits and protections such as workers’ compensation, overtime, medical leave, and more. ## How Can a Kissimmee Overtime Attorney Help You?
