Pennsylvania Unpaid Wages & Overtime Lawyers
Has your employer failed to pay you overtime wages as established by state and federal law? Is your bank account light because your employer decided to withhold wages to pay for an expense that is not your legal responsibility to pay? If you work for tips, has your employer deducted a percentage of your rightfully earned gratuities to compensate support staff such as bussers and dishwashers? Each of these three examples might be considered a violation of state and federal laws, which means you should act with a sense of urgency by contacting one of the experienced unpaid wages and overtime lawyers in Pennsylvania.
Until 1938, American workers could not contest unfair wage practices, such as withholding income and refusing to pay overtime wages. Employers did not have to pay a minimum wage, which left most workers exploited by greedy bosses. A majority of American workers earned a meager few cents an hour, which barely put food on the table for one meal a day. Beginning in the 1930s, the organized labor movement in the United States began to gain momentum and in 1938, the United States Congress responded to the political pressure applied by unions with the passage of a landmark employment law.
As part of sweeping legislation that formed the historic New Deal, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of 1938 established a federal minimum wage, as well as outlawed several types of unpaid wage practices. Following the legal precedent set by the FLSA, most states enacted employment laws that placed additional restrictions on employers when it came to fair labor practices. Some states require employers to pay overtime to every worker who puts in more than eight hours of work within 24 hours.
Although state and federal laws grant American workers unprecedented protection, some employers continue to steal wages from employees, as well as force overtime without compensating workers for the extra work. If your employer has cheated you out of rightful wages, contact one of the unpaid wages and overtime lawyers in Pennsylvania from Morgan and Morgan.
