Paying Overtime Is The Law!

Covered nonexempt employees must receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 per workweek (any fixed and regularly recurring period of 168 hours — seven consecutive 24-hour periods) at a rate not less than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay. While there is no limit on the number of hours employees 16 years or older may work in any workweek, overtime must be paid for hours in excess of 40 per workweek

Restaurant Abuse

Tipped employees are subject to some of the worst wage payment violations.  Restaurants are notorious for failing to pay servers what they are owed.  This happens most often because employers do not understand the requirements regarding the “tip credit” and valid “tip pooling” arrangements.  Employers are required to pay waiters and waitresses a minimum wage!  While they can count tips against that minimum, if they do so, they are not allowed to keep any tips or divide tips among employees who are not considered “tipped” employees.

State Law Trumps Federal Law

Employers are obligated to follow State law regarding minimum wage and overtime where those laws are more generous or strict than federal laws!

Employers must follow Pennsylvania’s regulations even if these rules are more stringent for employers than the revised federal requirement.

It's a dirty secret, but not little. Employment lawyers recognize that wage and hour abuse is "rampant". The truth is that many employers are not familiar with the manner and method by which they are required to pay their employees. Some industries are worse than others, but ignorance is not an excuse. We provide representation to employees who have been unlawfully underpaid. Don't be a victim!
