Security Guards

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.

Security Guards often work extremely long hours. It is not uncommon for employers of Security Guards to refuse to compensate these employees for all hours that they are actually performing work, including hours that would be eligible for overtime pay. If you work as a Security Guard and your employer fails to keep track of each and every hour that you work, you may be entitled to unpaid overtime.
