Hourly Wages

Federal and Florida laws require employees to be paid for all time worked. Employers often use illegal business practices to avoid paying employees for all the time they work. If your employer fails to pay you the agreed hourly rate for all time worked, you can pursue a claim for unpaid wages plus attorneys’ fees and costs under Florida law.

Common violations include:

  • Clocking employees in late and clocking employees out early
  • Requiring workers to set up, clean, or close down a worksite while off the clock
  • Unpaid travel time between worksites
  • Requiring employees to work during unpaid meal and rest breaks
  • Deducting pay for rest and meal breaks of less than 20 minutes
  • Not paying employees for work performed at home
  • Altering time and payroll records
  • Rounding down time worked
  • Unpaid on-call time depending on the circumstances
  • Unpaid meeting and training sessions

One common misconception clients have is that they cannot pursue their claims without time records or other documentation. This is completely false.
