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

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 the employer is not required to provide overtime pay.
