We protect workers' rights Labor and Wage Law Lawyers St. Louis, Missouri, and Illinois Burger Law is a personal injury law firm that specializes in wage and hour claims. In Missouri, wage laws are governed by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Missouri Wage and Hour laws. These Fair Labor Standards Act laws cover minimum wage, overtime pay, classification of employees as exempt or non-exempt and a number of other key issues. Burger Law's wage and hour lawyers understand that employees are entitled to compensation for the hours they have worked and should be paid at least twice a month, with some exceptions. The way an employee is paid will depend on whether he/she is classified as exempt (salaried and therefore not entitled to overtime pay) or non-exempt (hourly and therefore entitled to overtime pay for time worked more than 40 hours in a week). If you believe that you're not being paid fairly, contact the wage and hour attorneys at Burger Law to get started on your free case evaluation.
