Understanding Overtime Rights for Construction Workers:

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) serves as a crucial safeguard for employees, providing protections against overtime violations by employers. Under the FLSA, non-exempt employees are entitled to overtime pay at a rate of one and a half times their regular rate of pay for any hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek. As Georgia Wage Lawyers, we understand the unique challenges that construction workers face when it comes to overtime disputes. Construction workers often work long hours in physically demanding conditions, yet they may not always receive proper compensation for their overtime work. Overtime disputes in the construction industry can arise due to various reasons, including employers 

  • Misclassifying workers as exempt from overtime pay,
  • Failing to accurately record all hours worked or altering time records, or 
  • Deliberately denying workers their rightful overtime wages for various reasons. 

As a result, these disputes can have a significant impact on the financial well-being of construction workers and their families. That’s why our team is dedicated to fighting for the rights of construction workers and ensuring they receive the overtime pay they deserve under the law. We provide aggressive representation and advocacy to help construction workers resolve their overtime disputes and recover the compensation they are owed.

Unpaid overtime can have significant financial and personal consequences for employees. It not only deprives workers of the compensation they rightfully deserve for their hard work but also disrupts their work-life balance and affects their overall well-being. Therefore, it’s important to address these violations with a trusted overtime lawyer on your side. An experienced lawyer can help you understand your rights, navigate complex labor laws, and pursue legal action. Consult our team today for assistance with your overtime claim!

Identifying Overtime Violations 

As Georgia Wage Lawyers, we have extensive experience in identifying indicators of overtime violations for construction workers. Here are some common signs that may suggest an overtime violation:

  • Inconsistent or inaccurate record-keeping of hours worked.
  • Pressure from employers to work off the clock or under-report hours.
  • Failure to receive overtime pay for hours worked beyond 40 hours in a workweek.
  • Shifting overtime hours worked in one week to a different pay period.
  • Misclassification of workers as exempt from overtime pay when they should be classified as non-exempt.
  • Deduction of meal periods from work time when the meal is seldom or never taken, resulting in extended work hours without proper compensation.
