Employment Attorneys in Gloucester County, New Jersey

Many people in Gloucester County are statutory employees instead of exempt workers. Statutory employees have certain pay protections under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and the New Jersey State Wage and Hour Law. Under federal law, covered U.S. employers are required to pay statutory employees a minimum of $7.25 per hour. However, New Jersey’s state law establishes a minimum wage of $10 per hour. Since the state minimum wage is higher, New Jersey employers are required to follow the state law.

If you are a statutory, non-exempt employee who works over 40 hours in a workweek, you are entitled to be paid overtime compensation for every hour you work above 40. Workers who receive tipped wages must receive at least the state minimum wage of $10 per hour when their tips are added to their regular wages.

If you have not received overtime compensation or have received less than the minimum wage of New Jersey, talk to the employment attorneys at Swartz Swidler. We might help you to recover the compensation that you are owed.
