Atlanta Attorney for FLSA Overtime Claims

Under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), employers who require employees to work overtime are generally required to pay them premium pay for such overtime work. Employees covered by the FLSA must receive overtime pay of at least one and one-half times their regular rate of pay for all hours worked over forty (40) in a workweek.

Unfortunately, employers often violate federal law regarding overtime pay. Sometimes the violations are intentional, and sometime they are the result of an employer wrongfully classifying employees as exempt from overtime based on their job duties. Whether the violation is intentional or not, employees can recover their back pay and additional amounts as damages under the FLSA.

Many people spend the majority of their waking hours at work trying to earn a living and provide for their families. You deserve to receive all pay to which you are entitled under the law. Frequently, when an employer is not complying with federal wage and hour law with one employee, the same is true for other employees as well. Dozier Law Group represents individuals and groups of employees in FLSA overtime cases. We pursue significant class action lawsuits for various employee groups throughout Georgia.

If you believe that your employer has improperly classified you as exempt from overtime pay or has simply failed to pay you overtime in violation of federal law, call (404) 949-5600 to speak directly with Managing Principal Brad Dozier, an experienced and dedicated wage and hour attorney, or . We encourage you not to delay seeking legal representation, as overtime cases must be brought within the statute of limitations and can be lost forever if not pursued timely.
