What Is The FLSA?

In recent years, employees have gained more legal protections than they ever have had in the past. Nonexempt employees are protected under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). An experienced attorney can answer your questions and provide the exceptional legal guidance regarding your rights and options.

Essentially, the FLSA ensures that employees are paid appropriately for their work. This legal guideline holds employers accountable for paying the appropriate minimum wage as well as overtime.

At The Litigation Boutique LLC, we have extensive experience representing employees in wage disputes. Additionally, we have provided services in the past geared toward helping employers remain legally compliant. Our experience and thorough understanding of both sides of the dispute are a direct benefit to our clients in FLSA claims.

There are numerous reasons that an FLSA dispute can arise, including:

  • Improper classification, which can also lead to:
    • Treating employees as contractors
    • Paying hourly workers a salary
  • Minimum wage violations
  • Employers who expect "off the clock" work
  • Failing to pay overtime

It can be challenging for an employee to stand up for his or rights. In the face of potential retaliation — demotion, loss of hours, termination — many employees choose to remain quiet and suffer in silence. We encourage you to discuss your case with an experienced Colorado lawyer to learn more about your rights.
