Installer Claims His Broward County Employer Owes Him for Unpaid Overtime Work

February 13, 2017

A Broward County employer is accused of not paying an air conditioning installer and duct cleaner the proper rate for overtime work.

The man filed a complaint on Jan. 31 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against USA Air Duct Cleaners LLC.

According to the complaint, the man alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours without being paid any overtime compensation during his employment from April to October 2014. He holds USA Air Duct Cleaners LLC responsible because the they failed to pay him any overtime wages at a rate of time-and-one-half despite working more than 40 hours per week. According to the suit, he alleges he worked between 560 to 676 hours of overtime.

Overtime is defined by the Federal Labor Standards Act (FLSA) as any hours worked over 40 in a workweek. The compensation for hours worked more than 40 is 1.5 times the normal hourly rate. For example, if an employee makes $10 per hour, then they should be paid $15 per hour for all hours over 40 worked in that workweek. A work week is seven consecutive 24-hour periods, or 168 hours (24X7). The workweek can start on any day of the week.

The laws regarding overtime pay can be confusing, so if you feel your employer is cheating you in some way, our Broward County Unpaid Overtime Lawyers at Whittel & Melton can help you figure out whether you have a valid claim or not. If you do, we will take your case on a contingency fee basis, which means you owe us nothing until we recover compensation on your behalf.
