Employers are required to pay 1.5 times your normal wage if you work over 40 hours in one week. There are few exceptions. For most employees, the employer cannot come up with elaborate schemes to avoid paying overtime. The law in Florida and also in Federal Courts gives employees a right to enforce their overtime rights. There is no reason for you to be taken advantage of. Our team can recover unpaid overtime and vindicate your rights as a worker.


On Call Employees

It is a little-known fact that employees must be paid overtime if they perform any after-hours duties. If you are required to accept calls, carry around a special work phone, check work email, or do absolutely anything after hours – you may be entitled to overtime compensation for your work. Many employers are ignorant of the law requiring compensation.  The bottom line – if any job duties required by your employer push you past the 40-hour mark – they must pay overtime. That includes minor duties performed after hours or on the weekend.  Another little-known fact – mandatory social events must be compensated at regular pay.


“Independent Contractors”


This is the most abused classification that some employers use to get around wage and hour laws. There are legal tests for whether a certain type of employee can ever be considered an independent contractor. Most employees called independent contractors are done so improperly and against legal guidelines. If you have been designated as an independent contractor – you my be headed for serious tax consequences by the IRS. Our experienced legal team can help. Many times we can hold the employer responsible for improper classification and then we can recover money for you.

A very caring counseler 

Howard Ellzey is not only a fabulous attorney, but he is a great caring, compassionate man, he really took my case and problems to heart, and worked them as if they were his own, knowing that a person is in a very delicate and vulnerable position when an attorney is required to step in, is really where he excelled, using “kid gloves” to really help me understand what I was going to be going through, and really going the extra mile, to help bring me peace of mind and comfort, I was blessed to find such an attorney, I completely recommend Howard’s services, his skills are are well honed, and he certainly knows what he is doing in the pressure cooker of a court room, one consultation with the man will show you what I mean, a consummate professional, with the experience, knowledge, and know how, to bring anyone who hires him, the same blessing I experienced.

I hired Jason because I fired my previous attorney. Jason learned a two year on going dissolution of marriage case in a matter of weeks. Jason kept me more informed in a matter of weeks than from my prior attorney. He kept all his appointed times and the front desk receptionist was personal and professional.

During my dissolution hearing he came across as a gentlemen even to my ex spouse and his court room mannerism was second to none of what I had to go through with opposing counsel. Jason stated he was a good listener and he guided me prior and during court by redirecting questions for a better explanation instead of answering just yes or no question from opposing counsel. I understand this is strategy of counsel to only ask yes or no questions when they want to make a point, but during Jason’s cross examination, he filled in all the holes that I had dug for myself and allowed me to elaborate with my answers.

I was not anticipating the judge’s decision to be as favorable as it was for me but it was. I understand and am quite aware that not all decisions will go the way of the client, however, I would still give Jason an excellent rating had the final decision not been so favorable. i was well represented as was his firm. I am extremely happy with the professionalism and service provided by Jason and God forbid I am ever in a position to require an attorney for a divorce again, he surely will be my first call.
