Overtime

Bronson Lipsky represents thousands of workers in class and collective actions against employers to recover their earned overtime wages.

Federal law requires employees to be paid one and one-half (1.5) times their regularly hourly rate for every hour that they work above 40 in a workweek. So many hard working employees depend upon this overtime to care for themselves and their families. Yet employers disregard this law in a variety of ways: by paying employees a fixed weekly salary regardless of the hours that they work; by misclassifying employees who meet specified criteria as exempt salaried employees; or paying employees the same hourly rate for every hour worked. This is illegal. We fight to remedy this.
