Our Lawyers Demand Justice. Let Us Stand Up For You!
The Fair Labor Standards Act is a revolutionary piece of legislation that was passed in 1938 to establish protective laws for citizens of the United States. It ensures such rights as the 40 hour work week, minimum wage, and overtime pay, restricts child labor, and dictates that male and female workers must be paid equally for equal work.
The act was introduced shortly after the Great Depression to stop employers who were taking egregious advantage over the labor market. While it has brought about many important advancements in society, there is still no shortage of employers who attempt to deny their workers the wages and treatment that they are entitled to. If you are one of the many employees whose rights have been violated, our attorneys at Annie McAdams PC are here to protect you and seek justice on your behalf.
