What are the remedies available to me?
There are several different methods under the FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) for an employee to recover unpaid minimum wages and/or overtime wages; each method has different remedies. Our wage and hour claims lawyers can help you.
- Wage-Hour may supervise payment of back wages.
- The Secretary of Labor may bring suit for back wage claims and an additional penalty, called "liquidated damages," which can be equal to the back pay award (essentially doubling the damages) if an employer willfully violated the statute.
- An employee may file a private wage and hour claims lawsuit for back pay and an equal amount as liquidated damages, plus attorney's fees and court costs. An employee may not bring a wage and hour claims lawsuit if he or she has been paid back wages under the supervision of Wage-Hour or if the Secretary of Labor has already filed suit to recover the wages.
- The Secretary of Labor may obtain an injunction to restrain any person from violating FLSA, including the unlawful withholding of proper minimum wage and overtime pay.
Your state law may have different methods for recovery of unpaid wages, and different remedies to be awarded to those who succeed in proving a violation.
