If you’re concerned that your employer is not paying you what you are lawfully entitled to, the main body of law to consult is typically the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The FLSA provides many of the guiding wage and hour principles, such as requiring that all workers be paid at least minimum wage, and that non-exempt workers be paid overtime compensation for all time spent working in excess of 40-hours in any work week.
However, state law may provide additional considerations and protections that your employer must adhere to.
If you believe you have not been paid all you are entitled to, the first step is to consult with an experienced Georgia wage and hour lawyer who can review your case and determine all the laws that govern your situation.
