Wage and Hour Dispute Attorney

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA or the Act) governs wage and hour employment matters for employees engaged in interstate commerce. The scope of the Act is broadly interpreted, making most employers subject to the FLSA. Most states have enacted additional regulations which reflect, or further regulations, federal mandates. The FLSA and its state counterparts regulation, in part, laws regarding overtime and minimum wage.


If you are currently employed in the service industry as a waiter or bartender, you may be entitled to receive compensation for being underpaid by your employer.  Cohen grossman wage and hour dispute Florida is a "tip credit" state, which means an employer may be permitted to pay tipped employees an hour wage that falls below State/Federal minimum wage.


However, in order for your employer to legally pay the below-minimum wage and apply a "tip credit", the FLSA requires that no more than 20% of your shifts consists of "non-tipped" labor. As such, it is not uncommon for restaurant employers to illegally pay their employees a reduced "tip credit" wage when more than 20% of the employees time is spent performed non-tipped work, such as taking our garbage, cleaning floors or bathrooms or rolling silverware.
