Misclassification and Exemptions

Bronson Lipsky has substantial experience challenging employers who misclassify their employees and owe them overtime premium pay. Under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, all employees must be paid one and one-half (1.5) times their regular rate of pay for each hour worked above 40 in a workweek. Many employers try to avoid this by misclassifying employees as “exempt” from overtime and paying them a fixed salary for every hour worked. This happens in almost every industry.

We challenge these misclassifications and fight for that unpaid overtime.
