Wage and hour claims arise when workers are not paid in accordance with the applicable laws. At the federal level, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets the minimum wage and supplies various rules regarding overtime, who should receive overtime and how it is calculated. The individual states have their own laws that govern wage-related issues.
