McMahon Berger works to ensure compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and other federal laws that apply to most employers. It requires payment of the federal minimum wage and overtime for non-exempt employees. It also regulates the use of child labor.
Our attorneys advise federal and state contractors on the additional wage and hour obligations imposed by the Davis-Bacon Act and similar state statutes. We assist in determining whether contract coverage exists, and, if so, what the employer’s liability may be. McMahon Berger has successfully defended clients before the U.S. Department of Labor and in state court actions related to prevailing wage.
McMahon Berger advises clients on minimum wage and overtime requirements in many states and other jurisdictions. Other laws regulate the frequency of payment of wages, the form of wage statements, payments to terminated employees, and payout of accrued vacation and sick time.
Failure to comply with federal or state policies can result in enforcement actions, as well as litigation from current and former employees. Given the significant potential for liability, ongoing compliance is essential to protecting your business. Here are some of the most frequent wage and hour issues our attorneys have seen:
Advocacy before arbitrators, mediators, labor boards, agencies, and state and federal courts.
Vigorous pursuit of the best possible solution for each individual client.
Uncovering the facts needed to resolve employment and labor issues.
Legal assistance with labor and employment matters for nonprofit organizations.
