Overtime/Other Wage Compensation
Federal and Washington Law - Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and Washington law, non-exempt employees are entitled to time and a half compensation for all hours worked over 40 hours in a workweek. In addition, any overtime worked in a particular workweek must be paid on the pay day covering the same pay period in which the overtime hours were worked. If your employer allows you to work, you have to get paid for all of the time you worked and at time and a half your regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 40 hours in a work-week.
A prevailing employee may recover back wages and attorney’s fees.
Back wages – you are entitled to collect the wages owed to you.
Attorney’s Fees – prevailing employees are entitled to recover their reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, so that the employer, not the employee, pays for the employee’s legal representation.
