Understanding Wage & Hour Law
Wage and hour laws encompass regulations that protect employees by governing wage rates and ensuring proper compensation for working hours. These laws cover important aspects such as overtime, mandatory meal and rest breaks, minimum wage, tips, vacation and sick leave, severance, and more. In addition to the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), most states, including Arizona, have their own wage and hour laws.
Timelines for Payment in Arizona
Under Arizona's wage and hour laws, employers must pay their employees at least twice a month, with no more than 16 days between payments, as long as the employment is active. When termination occurs, employees must receive their final paycheck within seven working days or by the next scheduled payday, whichever comes first. If an employee resigns, the final paycheck may be issued on the next scheduled payday.
In the event that your employer fails to issue your final paycheck within the specified time or withholds owed wages upon termination, you have the right to file a civil lawsuit or a wage complaint with the Industrial Commission of Arizona (ICA).
Types of Wage & Hour Cases
Our attorneys handle a range of wage and hour cases, including:
- Minimum wage disputes - Failure to pay the minimum wage as mandated by federal and state law.
- Meals & rest breaks disputes - Unpaid breaks of 20 minutes or less, unpaid breaks during which work is still performed, or failure to provide required breaks.
- Off-the-clock work - Failure to compensate for work performed outside regular working hours or time spent donning or doffing work-related gear or uniforms.
- Vacation pay disputes - Nonpayment for accrued and unused vacation time (where applicable).
- Unpaid overtime - Failure to pay premium overtime wages for hours worked beyond a 40-hour workweek, unless exempt, or misclassification as an independent contractor to evade overtime payment.
