What to do if a paycheck is missing overtime hours

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs receives thousands of complaints from employees each year regarding wage violations by employers. Officials at Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, or LARA, suggest that many claims regarding labor wage violations result from clerical oversights, not from employers trying to avoid paying minimum wage, overtime hours or benefits.

The right legal approach for wrongfully terminated employees

Many Michigan residents have probably been terminated from their jobs at some point in time. Losing a job can create a difficult situation for a worker, and the person might find it difficult to support their family. It is important for the worker in that situation to determine whether the termination was fair.

Who is exempt from Fair Labor Standards Act wage regulations?

Many workers in Michigan put in extra hours on the job with the understanding that they will receive overtime pay. Most of these workers understand that such payment is required under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. However, some workers are exempted from these national overtime pay provisions. Every employee should check with an employer before accepting a job to determine whether the job is one of those that is exempt. In fact, this should be part of the process of looking closely at any job contract to find out what an employer expects and how and when the worker will be paid.
