Unpaid Wages

Do You Have Unpaid Wages? John Bales Attorneys Can Help.

Unpaid Wages

Under state and federal laws, such as the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employers are required to pay employees a basic minimum wage. Unfortunately, employers sometimes fail to pay employees the correct amount of wages.

It is your right to collect the wages you have earned according to the FLSA and Florida law. In Florida, the minimum wage is recalculated yearly on September 30, and is in effect beginning January 1 of each year.
