A majority of Williamstown, New Jersey workers are protected by the Fair Labor Standards Act and the New Jersey State Wage and Hour Law. Under the FLSA, employers are mandated to pay eligible workers at least $7.25 per hour for all hours worked. However, the state of New Jersey has established a state minimum wage of $10 per hour. Since the state’s minimum wage is higher, eligible workers are entitled to receive the higher state minimum wage.

If you are paid a tipped wage, special rules apply. Your tips and hourly wages must equal $10 or more per hour when they are combined. If you are a statutory, non-exempt employee, your employer must also pay an overtime premium to you in addition to your regular rate for each hour worked above 40 for a week.

If your employer has not paid you the minimum wage of $10 per hour or has not paid overtime pay for the hours that you have worked above 40 in a workweek, you may be entitled to recover the compensation that you are owed. The employment attorneys at Swartz Swidler can review your payment information and explain the rights that you might have.
