Class action: Florida company skirted overtime and wage laws

The recent spike in wage theft cases in Florida has been a frequent topic on this employment law blog. Of course, one of the most common methods of wage theft is failing to pay workers properly for overtime hours. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, employers must pay non-exempt workers time and one half for all hours worked in excess of 40 in a week.

Broward County Commission passes 'wage theft' ordinance

As many workers in South Florida are well aware, Broward County has been called the 15th worst place in the nation for wage theft. Wage theft is a term that applies when workers are not paid for their work, or are not paid at least minimum wage or proper overtime rates. Wage theft also happens when workers are forced to work off the clock or their timecards are manipulated. Back in June it was reported that Broward County had the third largest number of wage-theft cases in the state, and now the Broward County Commission has attempted to put a stop to this trend.

South Florida continues attempts to combat wage theft

Broward County might be the first county in Florida to implement a wage theft ordinance in the aftermath of a report that called the state the 15th worst in the nation when it comes to workers' abilities to recover unpaid wages. Broward County currently has the third largest number of wage-theft cases--those that involve workers not being paid overtime or minimum wage, being forced to work off the clock, or not being paid at all--in the state.

In Florida, law could bar some wage theft claims

In our Broward County Employment Law Blog we have previously written about the Florida state and federal laws that govern wages. Generally speaking, here in South Florida employees are granted wage and overtime rights under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act.
