Failure to Pay Wages

The number of employers who fail to pay their employees the wages they have earned is higher than most people would imagine. Employers may face serious consequences for failing to pay wages in a timely manner. If your claim is successful, you could recover compensation for your unpaid wages as well as treble damages, attorney’s fees, and other costs.

Maryland Overtime Law

Under Maryland and federal law, employers are required to pay employees 11/2 times their regular rate for hours worked in excess of 40 in a workweek (MD Code Sec. 3-415). Maryland does not require that overtime be paid for hours worked in excess of 8 per day or on weekends or holidays.

Legal Representation for Overtime Claims

Under both state and federal law, employers are required to provide overtime pay to non-exempt employees who work more than 40 hours in a workweek. Overtime pay is set at time and a half of the employee’s regular pay. Overtime laws apply to almost all Maryland employers and courts strictly enforce the law. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employees can recover twice the amount of overtime they are owed plus reasonable attorney’s fees.

Overtime is calculated based on the total number of hours actually worked and does not include:

  • Vacation
  • Sick time
  • Holidays
  • Leave hours

Many people are not fully informed of the legal definition of overtime. Often, employees believe they are exempt from overtime because they are paid a salary or because their employer told them they are exempt from overtime law. However, this is not always accurate. It is a good idea to consult with an experienced employment lawyer to determine if you are owed overtime wages. Our Maryland wage and overtime lawyers can evaluate your situation and provide the legal advice you need.
