Employment Attorneys In Sewell, New Jersey

Most New Jersey workers are protected by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and the New Jersey State Wage and Hour Law. These laws protect workers’ rights to receive a minimum wage and overtime pay. While the FLSA mandates employers to pay a minimum hourly rate of $7.25 to eligible workers, New Jersey’s hour and wage law requires employers in the state to pay a minimum hourly rate of at least $10 per hour. This means that workers in the state get the benefit of the state’s law since it mandates a higher minimum wage.

If you are paid a tipped wage at your job in Sewell, New Jersey, the wage and hour laws mandate that your total compensation must equal at least $10 per hour after your hourly rate is added to your tips. If you are a non-exempt worker, your employer must also pay you overtime compensation for every hour that you work above 40 during a week at a rate that is one-and-one-half times your normal rate.

If you have not received at least the minimum wage or the overtime pay that you should have received, you may have valid grounds to file a claim against your employer. The employment law attorneys at Swartz Swidler can review your case and discuss the legal options that you might have to recover the compensation that you should have received.
