Typical industries where there are many violations of overtime wage pay are : agriculture; day care, restaurants, garment manufacturing, guard services, health care, hotels & motels, janitorial services and temporary help. An employee can start a private lawsuit to enforce their rights. Although the Department of Labor can, and does, sue employers in federal court to enforce FLSA laws, Congress has provided that in litigation the employer must pay the attorneys fees of an employee who succeeds. Thus, there is a strong incentive for attorneys to fight vigorously in this arena. You may contact the Law Office of Rose H.
