As one of Colorado’s leading employment and labor law practices, Buescher, Kelman & Perera, P.C. offers clients aggressive representation and supportive counsel in a variety of federal and state disputes related to overtime pay and wage disputes.
An employee’s wage or salary is often one of the most important employment-related concerns for any worker. Our Denver law firm works closely with workers and professional and executive employees to protect their rights under state laws and the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA).
While state and federal laws relating to wage and hour agreements provide employees with a variety of rights, recent changes have dramatically changed the way that employee rights apply to workers throughout the Rocky Mountain region.
Following changes in the FLSA in 2004, new provisions increased the minimum salary an employee must earn in order to be exempted from receiving overtime benefits, from $250 to $455 every week. The new overtime laws mandate that workers receive overtime pay when their employment involves manual labor. Moreover, most individuals who work in professional fields related to public service, law enforcement, and emergency response must receive overtime pay.
These changes, other modifications to the FLSA, and existing and federal state law are specifically designed to protect employees from unfair employment practices related to unjust compensation. For more than forty years, when an employer violates a law relating to wage or overtime pay, Buescher, Kelman & Perera, P.C. has offered employees the aggressive representation of wage and overtime lawyers to defend their rights and seek back pay for the compensation they deserve.
