Honolulu Overtime Pay Lawsuits: Sue for Unpaid Overtime

If you are a Honolulu employee who was not paid for working overtime, you may be able to file a Honolulu 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.

Honolulu Overtime Lawsuit Lawyers

Our Honolulu 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 almost 375,000 people live in the city of Honolulu and the population is still growing.  Honolulu is the most populated city in the state of Hawaii.

The major economic sectors include tourism, international trade, transportation, utilities, professional and business services, leisure and hospitality, educational and health services, and government. The unemployment rate is 4.2%.

The metropolitan area has a very diverse workforce including government employees, service workers, manufacturing workers, tourism based employment, and a wide range of other industries.  The largest employers in the Honolulu area are:

  1. U.S. Government                                             
  2. City and County of Honolulu
  3. Altres Medical
  4. Kapiolani Medical Center
  5. Kyo-Ya Co. Ltd.
  6. Queen’s Medical Center
  7. Hawaii Health Systems Corp.
  8. Tripler Army Medical Center
  9. Bank of Hawaii Corp.
  10. Aeko Kula Inc.                                                

The success of Honolulu 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 Hawaii overtime pay laws in addition to federal regulations.honolulu overtime pay lawsuit
