As an employee, you are entitled to full compensation for every hour you work.  Federal and state laws protect your right to compensation and allow you to bring claims against employers who violate your rights.  The Fair Labor Standards Act is a federal statute that requires employers to pay employees a minimum wage, as well as overtime for hours worked over forty hours in a seven-day work week.  The law applies to all employees, whether United States citizens or not.  North Carolina also has a wage and hour law which provides most of the same protections as the Fair Labor Standards Act and includes additional protections.  Employees may bring private lawsuits under state or federal law, or both, to protect their rights to fair and full compensation.  If you have any questions, please contact us at 1-866-WAGES-NC (1-866-924-3762).
