Another neighbor in Washington Township, MI, had her rights violated under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) when her employer did not pay her one and one-half her regular pay rate for hours worked over 40 hours in a workweek. She worked for a patent company who did not think that they had to pay her the overtime pay rate under the FLSA because she was an administrative employee. Under the FLSA, some administrative employees are not entitled to overtime pay. However, when employees are doing work that is integral to the business, those employees are covered by the FLSA. Our neighbor contacted the Law Offices of Bryan Yaldou. We were able to successfully negotiate a settlement that paid her for her back wages plus extra damages under the FLSA at no cost to our neighbor!
