Case Number: :23-cv-04190
Judge: Paul A. Engelmayer
Court: United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Manhattan County)
Defendant's Attorney: No appearance
Description: New York City, New York employment law lawyers represented Plaintiff who sued Defendant on a Fair Labor Standards Act violation theory.
"The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that sets minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and child labor standards affecting employees in the United States. The FLSA applies to most employees in the United States, including those who are employed by the federal government, state and local governments, and private employers.
The FLSA establishes a minimum wage of $7.25 per hour for most employees. Some employees, such as those who are younger than 20 years old, may be paid a lower minimum wage. The FLSA also requires employers to pay overtime pay to employees who work more than 40 hours in a week. Overtime pay is typically time and a half the regular hourly rate.
The FLSA requires employers to keep records of employee hours worked, wages paid, and other information. The records must be kept for at least three years. The FLSA also prohibits child labor. Children under the age of 14 are prohibited from working in most jobs. Children ages 14 and 15 are prohibited from working in hazardous jobs.
The FLSA is enforced by the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor. If an employer violates the FLSA, the Wage and Hour Division may investigate the violation and take enforcement action. Enforcement actions can include civil penalties, back wages, and injunctions.
If you believe that your employer has violated the FLSA, you may be able to file a complaint with the Wage and Hour Division. You can file a complaint online or by calling the Wage and Hour Division's toll-free number.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind about the FLSA:
The FLSA does not apply to all employees. Some employees, such as those who are self-employed, are not covered by the FLSA.
The FLSA does not set maximum hours that an employee can work. However, some states have laws that set maximum hours that an employee can work.
The FLSA does not require employers to provide health insurance or paid vacation days. However, some employers may choose to provide these benefits to their employees.
The FLSA is a complex law, and there are many nuances to its application. If you have any questions about the FLSA, you should speak with an attorney."
