If you have come to this site, it is because you received a letter from us directing you here for more information. We are pleased that you accepted our invitation to find out how you may recover unpaid overtime wages. We have tried to keep this site simple and focused on overtime for EMS personnel.

Simply put, EMS personnel are probably entitled to overtime because they are nonexempt employees. This means that they are not exempt from the law that requires employers to pay employees overtime. This law is called the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") at the federal level. The reason EMS personnel are probably not exempt is that they do not perform the right duties to be exempt. The FLSA is very particular about what kinds of duties are exempt.

We know that no one likes to get involved in litigation. However, we also know that many employers fail to pay their employees fairly and in accordance with the law. If you have worked for such an employer in the last two (or possibly three) years, you should complete our confidential Questionnaire.

Getting a Salary Does Not Prevent Overtime Recovery
You can get overtime even if you earn a salary. Just getting a paid on a commission or salary basis does not make an employee exempt.

Please take a look through this web site. We hope it answers your questions. You can fill out a confidential, online questionnaire so that we can review your case. Or, if you would rather speak to an attorney, please contact us.

This site contains general information about your rights to overtime and unpaid wages. We hope you find it informative. This site is not intended to provide legal advice or to create an attorney- client relationship.
