Most workers in Turnersville, New Jersey are protected under the New Jersey State Wage and Hour Law and the Fair Labor Standards Act. The FLSA is a federal law that mandates covered employers to pay their workers at least $7.25 per hour for every hour that they work. However, New Jersey’s state law sets the minimum wage in the state at $10 per hour. Because of this, eligible employees in New Jersey are entitled to be paid the higher state minimum wage.

If you receive a tipped wage, you must be paid at least $10 per hour when your hourly rate and your tips are totaled. Non-exempt workers in New Jersey must also be paid an overtime premium for each hour that they work beyond 40 hours in a week.

If you have not received at least the state minimum wage or have not received the overtime pay that you deserve, you may have grounds to file a wage and hour claim. The employment law attorneys at Swartz Swidler can evaluate your potential claim and provide you with an assessment of the next steps you can take.

If you have been the victim of retaliation because you reported your employer’s illegal activities, the employment lawyers may help you to pursue a retaliation claim against your employer.
