Misclassification Of Employees

Experienced Employee Misclassification Attorneys Serving Orlando, Florida

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employees are presumed to be non-exempt employees unless they are classified under a specific exemption. Employees who fit in the exemption are paid a salary instead of hourly wages, however, this often confuses employers and causes misclassification of employees.

At Wilson McCoy, P.A., we have over 60 years of combined legal experience representing clients in a multitude of employment disputes including misclassification claims. We can apply our extensive knowledge of FLSA exemptions to your employment law issue to help assess your matter and assert your rights.

Employee Misclassification Occurs Often

With over 30 years of combined legal experience, our knowledgeable Orlando employment lawyers have come across many misclassified employees due to the numerous and dense federal and state wage laws that regulate these classifications. Employers often misclassify nonexempt employees, as well as independent contractors, leading to improper payment of overtime, base pay, and other wage issues.

If you are a nonexempt employee, with certain exceptions, you are entitled to one-and-one-half times your regular wage for each hour worked over 40 hours in a week. If you are an exempt employee but are paid under a certain salary threshold, you too are entitled to overtime payments.
