Fort Lauderdale Turnpike Worker Says He Was Not Paid Overtime

February 28, 2017

A Florida Turnpike road ranger alleges he worked 2.5 hours of overtime per week and was never compensated for it.

The man filed a complaint on Feb. 26 against Florida Turnpike Services LLC alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

According to the complaint, the man alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours per week as a road ranger without being paid any overtime compensation. He holds Florida Turnpike Services LLC responsible because they failed to pay him any overtime premiums at a rate of time-and-one-half.

The rules regarding overtime pay are simple – if you put in the time, you should be paid for it. Sadly, despite laws that require employers to pay applicable overtime, many Florida employers continue to underpay their employees for the work they do.

If your employer owes you unpaid overtime, you need legal help to recover what is rightfully owed to you. Our Fort Lauderdale Unpaid Overtime Lawyers at Whittel & Melton can make sure you understand your rights and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
