BOISE, Idaho — Our Boise overtime lawyers file unpaid overtime lawsuits on behalf of workers who are not paid the legally required wages. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), a large number of workers who are entitled to overtime pay never receive the wages owed to them under federal or state law. Many times, the company either misclassifies a worker as “exempt,” denies overtime, or falsely informs workers that overtime pay is not required for their position. When an employer denies or refuses to pay overtime wages, it may give rise to an unpaid overtime lawsuit.
Recent data shows that over 212,000 people live in the city of Boise and the population is growing at a rate of 3.22%. Boise is the most populated city in the state of Idaho.
The major economic sectors include government, software, environmental technology, manufacturing, hardware assembly, agriculture and national call centers. The unemployment rate is 5.7%.
The metropolitan area has a very diverse workforce including government employees, service workers, manufacturing workers, and a wide range of other industries. The largest employers in the Boise area are:
- St. Luke’s Medical Center
- Micron Technology, Inc.
- Boise State University
- Meridian Joint School District #2
- Independent School District Boise City #1
- St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center
- Wal-Mart Associates, Inc.
- Albertson’s, Inc.
- Hewlett-Packard Co
- J.R. Simplot
The success of Boise is largely based upon its dedicated and ambitious workforce. Many employees work in excess of 40 hours per week at their jobs, either voluntarily or at the request of their employer. In many circumstances, the employee is not receiving federal and state mandated overtime pay.
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), “covered” employees are entitled to overtime pay at 1.5 times the regular pay rate. Other jobs and occupations are considered exempt, which means that overtime pay is not required by the employer. Some employers “misclassify” the job as an attempt to pay overtime wages, but this is an unlawful and deceptive practice and violates federal law. There are also Idaho overtime pay laws in addition to federal regulations.
