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


Jason Coupal on Wage Theft

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.

Howard was professional, upfront, realistic and nonjudgemental. I felt completly comfertable with him and did not have any issues reaching him during my case. I also was able to speak with him following my case over the phone, almost a year later. I was surprised to find a lawyer who was still willing to help and answer my questions after so much time had gone by. I would absolutely recomend him to anyone.

I hired Howard Iken as my attorney to handle my divorce case. Not only did he secure a win for me in the eventual divorce trial, he was also successful in having the post divorce trial petitions (4) filed by my ex-husband dismissed. Mr. Iken is very professional and adept at developing strategies that are favorable to his clients. He is organized, thorough, creative and more than willing to go the extra mile. I would highly recommend Mr. Iken’s law firm to anyone seeking legal services.
