What Is the FLSA?
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that establishes standards for minimum wage and overtime pay that applies to all employers in the U.S. When a state’s established minimum wage falls below the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, employees should make the greater of the two wages.
This means that employees in Georgia should earn at least $7.25 per hour of work. When earning overtime, employees should be compensated at a rate of 1.5 times (time-and-a-half) their normal earning rate for each hour worked beyond 40 in a work week.
If you believe you weren’t paid what you were owed, you may have a claim. Consult with our wage and hour lawyers in Atlanta to learn more about your legal options.
Collective Actions & Class Actions
Among the legal matters we can help our clients address are collective actions and class actions. These types of lawsuits are similar in that they can help groups of employees who are similarly aggrieved, but they differ in important ways.
Primarily, a class action is a lawsuit initiated against an employer that involves all employees unless they opt out of the claim. Members of a class action may receive compensation, but they are barred from filing individual claims.
Conversely, collective actions build support as aggrieved employees opt into the claim. These lawsuits are generally easier to resolve, often ending in settlements. The courts are inclined to approve these settlements as long as they’re fair to all members who joined the collective action.
