Pennsylvania Wage and Hour Laws
Both Pennsylvania and federal laws protect workers’ rights to overtime pay and provide the opportunity to hold employers accountable. A variety of issues may arise in wage and hour laws and claims that must be handled by experienced attorneys. For instance, employers often don’t include additional compensation such as commissions, bonuses, incentives, or COVID premium pay when calculating overtime.
Additionally, employers attempt to avoid paying their Pennsylvania workers overtime by instead paying a day or piece rate, misclassifying employees as independent contractors, telling workers they’re exempt from overtime, or making them work off-the-clock. These actions are in direct violation of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Pennsylvania state law, and employers must be held accountable. Our unpaid overtime attorneys serving Pennsylvania workers will fight to obtain the pay you deserve.

Exempt and Non-Exempt Employment Status in Pennsylvania
An employee’s exempt or non-exempt status determines their eligibility for overtime pay. The determination is primarily based on a worker’s job responsibilities, as well as how they’re paid. Certain considerations include whether employees perform administrative or supervisory duties, and whether they’re paid on an hourly or salaried basis.
Common exempt positions include:
- Outside salespeople
- Computer-related workers
Even if some of your job duties fall under the exempt category, you may still have an unpaid overtime claim. Status can’t be determined purely on job title. Our unpaid overtime attorneys serving Pennsylvania workers can assess your case, as well as help you understand your exemption status and qualifications for overtime pay.
