Little Rock Overtime Pay Lawsuits: Sue for Unpaid Overtime

If you are a Little Rock employee who was not paid for working overtime, you may be able to file a Little Rock unpaid overtime pay lawsuit. These lawsuits demand that the employer, either past or present, to pay the employee back unpaid wages for overtime hours that were worked but paid. Unpaid overtime lawsuits also seek payment of the attorney’s fees and expenses incurred in pursuing legal action.

Overtime is the amount of time an employee works beyond normal working hours. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes a standard work week of no more than 40 hours per week for most employees. The federal law requires payment for time worked beyond 40 hours a week at a rate of no less than one and one-half times their regular rate of pay. Most workers, included many salaried workers, are eligible to receive paid overtime.

Employers who violate overtime pay laws can be sued by the employee for the unpaid time. Many of these cases are filed as class action lawsuits by a large number of employees against the same employer. An employer cannot retaliate an employee, like firing or disciplining the worker, if the employee files a lawsuit for unpaid wages. If there is retaliation, the employer may face additional charges in a civil lawsuit for wrongful termination.

Little Rock Overtime Lawsuit Lawyers

Our Little Rock 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 197,000 people live in the city of Little Rock and the population is still growing. Little Rock is the most populated city in the state of Arkansas.

The major economic sectors include state, local and federal government positions, financial, insurance, education and healthcare. The unemployment rate is about 3.3%.

The metropolitan area has a very diverse workforce and service employees, hospital workers, IT workers, hotel and restaurant employees, professional services, and a wide range of other industries.  The largest employers in the downtown Little Rock area are:

  1. Arkansas State Government
  2. Arkansas Local Government
  3. Arkansas Federal Government
  4. University of Arkansas for Medical Studies
  5. Baptist Health
  6. Little Rock Air Force Base
  7. Arkansas Childrens Hospital
  8. Little Rock School District
  9. Central Arkansas Veterans Health System
  10. Entergy Arkansas

The success of Little Rock is largely based upon its dedicated and ambitious workforce.  Many employees work in excess of 40 hours per week at their job, 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 Arkansas overtime pay laws in addition to federal regulations.Little Rock Overtime Pay Laws
