PHILIDELPHIA, PA — The popular clothing store, Urban Outfitters, has come under fire for allegedly failing to pay managers correctly after misclassifying them. A former manager said they were not paid the proper wages based on the fact that they were completing “non-managerial” jobs around the store. Initially, many managers filed together in the case, but this has been broken up due to the cases being too different in factual basis.
What Are Employees Entitled To Under FLSA And The Final Rule?
While the Final Rule will be changing which workers will be eligible to receive overtime benefits, the benefits themselves will remain unchanged. The primary overtime benefit is the payment of at least “time-and-a-half,” or 1.5 times standard pay rate, for each hour an employee works beyond 40 hours. This policy applies to salaried workers whose earnings fall below the overtime salary threshold – which has been raised with the passing of the Final Rule.
Can I file an FLSA lawsuit against my employer for unpaid overtime?
Yes, you may be able to file an FLSA lawsuit against your employer for unpaid overtime. FLSA lawsuits seek to hold employers accountable for failing to pay the required wages to their workers. These claims seek payment of unpaid or underpaid wages, attorney’s fees, and litigation expenses. Some cases may also force the payment of liquidated damages, which are money damages beyond just the receiving the back pay for unpaid wages.
If your employer owes you overtime wages for work performed, even dating several years back, our top rated attorneys can file a claim for you to recover the unpaid wages that you are owed. There are strict time deadlines for filing FLSA lawsuits, so it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately. If you wait, you may lose your ability to recover some or all of your back pay.
