|When asked to work overtime, Chad tells his boss that under the law, he is not required to work over forty hours per week and declines the overtime. Is Chad correct? and Drake, a new MBA graduate, is hired into a management job. It is Drake’s first job as a professional. After several months, Drake finds he is leaving work later and later. Drake begins to resent that he works late, putting in more and more hours and is not receiving any more than the originally agreed salary. He is contemplating legal action against his employer for violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Will it be worth his while to pursue this? and Thomas, an elementary school teacher, is resentful of the time he has to spend before and after school correcting papers, copying work sheets for students and creating interesting and stimulating classroom bulletin boards for the children. Janella, an hourly employee at the local toy factory, tells Thomas that he should file a claim against his employer for violating the FLSA because when she works over a certain number of hours per week she is paid overtime, and Thomas should be too. What should Thomas do? and What about federal government employee claims about FLSA violations? Any examples with which you are familiar or have discovered information through research? We have several examples within the Department of Defense.|
