IT workers are often cheated out of overtime pay by their employers. While many hourly workers are protected by the overtime requirement under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the law is not so clear for Information Technology (IT) Workers. Our experienced overtime pay lawyers will evaluate your claim and determine if you are or were eligible for overtime pay.
The FLSA does not list specific IT job titles that are and are not exempt from overtime requirements; rather, it refers to “computer employees” in general, and IT Workers are included in that category. In deciding whether individual IT Workers are entitled to overtime pay under the FLSA, courts will consider whether the IT Workers perform the following job duties: consulting with users; applying systems analysis techniques and procedures; determining functional specifications for hardware, software, or systems; and designing, testing, or developing computer systems or programs.
Determining whether a particular IT Worker is entitled to overtime pay is a complex question: many factors go into the decision, and your state’s overtime laws may complicate the issue. Because of this, it is best to consult an experienced attorney who can advise you on your case.
Depending on your exact job duties and pay rate, if you are an IT Worker who worked more than 40 hours a week but did not receive overtime pay, you may be entitled to file an IT Worker overtime pay lawsuit. These lawsuits may be filed by an entire group of IT Workers against an employer. There are strict time deadlines for filing lawsuits, so it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately if you think you have been wrongfully denied overtime wages. If you wait, you may lose your ability to recover some or all of your back pay.
