WAGE (FLSA) DEFENSE
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is designed to protect workers against unscrupulous employers. However, this statute is often improperly used as a tool by unscrupulous workers to wrongly squeeze money out of upstanding employers.
Don’t let this happen to you.
Romano & Associates does not succumb to such claims. Instead, we use the entirety of the FLSA to poke holes in a plaintiff’s claim with the goal of limiting (and hopefully removing) exposure.
Does your company earn more than $500,000 per year? How many employees do you have? Was the worker an independent contractor or salaried employee? What type of control did you exercise over this worker? Did you post the proper notices?
These are all factors that either individually, or in the collective, can be used to counteract these often-frivolous claims.
