Our employee rights attorneys have represented thousands of victims of workplace harassment, retaliation, and discrimination and are experienced in handling complex employment law issues in Sarasota and across the State of Florida. We take pride in representing the employee, not the employer, and fight aggressively to protect workplace rights.

Florida Minimum Wage and Unpaid Overtime

Trying to recover back pay, overtime or commissions is not something an employee should have to do when they are working hard to earn a living. To save on payroll expenses, some employers use common tactics, such as employee misclassification, to get out of paying what they owe.

In Florida, the minimum wage is currently $8.25 per hour (2018), and employees qualify for overtime pay for time-and-a-half for every hour after 40 hours of work. If you believe you are a victim of misclassification or are not being paid the wages, overtime or commissions you are owed, you have rights and need to contact an employment lawyer to represent your case.
