Compensation for Overtime Hours

How a Chicago Employment Lawyer Can Help You

Many employees regularly work more than 40 hours in a week. Under state and federal law, some of these employees are entitled to additional pay for the extra time worked. If you are working overtime and are wondering whether you qualify for overtime, seek guidance from a Chicago employment law attorney.

The Law Offices of Fern Trevino can inform you about the laws pertaining to overtime and other wage and hour matters and advise you of your rights. The firm has handled employment law matters for Chicago-area employees for 25 years, and offers experienced guidance and representation. If you believe that your employer has misclassified you as a salaried or an exempt employee to avoid paying you overtime, or are experiencing any other violation of your rights, contact the Law Offices of Fern Trevino to schedule a confidential consultation.

The United States Department of Labor regulates minimum wages, maximum hours, and overtime pay for employees and employers. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) provides that, unless employees are exempt, employers must pay them overtime for any hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a week, at a rate of no less than time and one-half times their regular rate.
