Under the FLSA, cooks are entitled to earn compensation for every hour worked. Sometimes companies violate the FLSA by misclassifying their customer service representatives as independent contractors or by failing to pay them the minute they start work for the company. Under the FLSA, customer service representatives are entitled to compensation as soon as they start an activity to benefit the company.
Under certain circumstances, some cooks may be exempt from the FLSA requirements. Additionally, some states may have their own overtime pay laws that may be slightly different from the FLSA with respect to overtime pay for cooks. An experienced overtime pay attorney can determine whether you are entitled to overtime wages based upon your job description, job duties, rate of pay, and number of hours worked. There are strict time deadlines for filing lawsuits so it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately.
