The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was designed to control wages and overtime pay for nonexempt employees. Despite these laws, employers may still disregard them and by doing so subject themselves to the possibility of civil lawsuits as well as criminal charges and fines.
If you are a salaried employee, don’t think that the FLSA does not apply to you. You may be protected under certain provisions. When your employer refuses to pay you the full wages that you were promised, this is unfair, but also illegal, regardless of whether you are a salaried employee or not.
