Information About Retaliation in the Workplace

Many employees are afraid to bring a claim for unpaid overtime, or even to question their employer’s pay practices for fear of being terminated, demoted or having some other adverse effect on their employment. While this is a natural concern, the Fair Labor Standards Act prohibits such actions by an employer, and Federal Judges do not treat such behavior lightly. Employers who fire employees for trying to asserts their rights under the FLSA can be required to pay the employee wages that were lost while the employee was out of a job, an equal amount to the lost wages as "liquidated damages", and can be required to reinstate the employee in his or her previous position.
