What are Georgia’s Minimum Wage Laws?
The federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. Most of the time, federal law applies. However, there are exceptions. In some limited cases–depending on the size of the business and the type of jobs–Georgia state laws apply and the minimum wage is $5.15 per hour. Regardless of the rate, we have the knowledge and experience to guide you to the best outcome.
Additionally, minimum wage workers are entitled to certain protections under federal and state laws. These valuable protections include:
- Fair Pay: Employers must compensate employees at or above the minimum wage for every hour worked.
- Overtime Pay: Eligible employees should receive overtime pay, generally at one-and-a-half times their regular hourly rate, for hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek.
- Proper Classification: Employees must be accurately classified as exempt or non-exempt to ensure proper minimum wage and overtime pay calculations.
- Anti-Retaliation Measures: Employers are prohibited from retaliating against employees who assert their rights to fair wages under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Expertise In Minimum Wage Claims
Despite these protections, violations can occur. Employers might attempt to underpay workers, misclassify them, or deny overtime pay. If you suspect a violation, it’s crucial to take action. Our Georgia minimum wage lawyers have the expertise to:
- Analyze your situation and determine if a violation has occurred.
- Build a strong case grounded in evidence to support your claim.
- Strategically seek a fair resolution with your employer regardless of what law applies
- Pursue legal remedies, including filing a complaint or litigation, to ensure your rights are upheld.
