If you’ve worked in excess of 40 hours a week and have not been compensated for overtime, your employer may be in violation of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. Many employers seek a way around fair compensation by attaching titles to a job, such as assistant manager or loan officer, that they believe will exempt them from having to pay appropriate overtime pay. These devices are not only illegal, they are actionable. There are laws in place that can provide workers with the back-pay they deserve. If even a single employee is willing to stand up for their rights, the company will be forced to fairly compensate all employees in the future.
Some companies engage in behaviors designed to squash their competition and dictate costs, such as price-fixing and consumer allocation.
