Fair Labor Standards Act

LMVT represents employers across the nation regarding wage and hour investigations from state and federal regulators.

Our attorneys frequently consult with employers regarding proper pay systems, the use of exemptions, and Fair Labor Standards Act compliance.  We also defend individual and collective FLSA litigation of all types, including against allegations of: misclassification of employees as exempt, unpaid break time, improper tip pooling, improper application of tip credit, improper record-keeping practices.

How we help our clients

In conjunction with our staff consultant, a former District Director of the Wage & Hour Division of the Department of Labor, we conduct audits of client pay systems to ensure compliance with the Act.

We provide training on the proper application of exemptions.
