Mechanics & Automotive Technicians

The Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) requires certain employers to pay their employees overtime compensation for all hours worked in excess of forty in a workweek at a rate not less than one and one-half times their regular rate of pay. Employees are generally assumed to be entitled to the rights and protections of the FLSA unless the employer is able to establish that such employees are not covered by the act because the employee fits within one of the several statutory exemptions.

Mechanics and Automotive Technicians who work in repair or service shops are often improperly compensated. Often these employees are required to work off-the-clock or are paid a piece rate or commissions when they should be receiving overtime pay. In addition, due to worker misclassification, employees are often improperly paid a salary with the title of “assistant manager” and are not paid overtime wages for all hours worked over forty in a workweek.
