Can you waive FLSA rights?

Flsa what is it

A worker has been unfairly dismissed and has to send a letter to be recognized as entitled to be compensated.    At the post office he tries to pay for the document letter and the post office staff tells him that he does not have to pay anything.

The labor principle that is being applied is that of gratuity. Because all administrative and judicial procedures do not entail any cost for the worker, as long as it is for the recognition of a violated labor right.

A worker was dismissed and the employer alleged that he did not work in a relationship of dependency, since he provided a service and for this purpose he invoiced. The judge was able to prove that although the worker was invoicing, he was also fulfilling schedules and obeying all the employer’s directives, therefore, there was a disguised employment relationship.

An employer put up a sign saying: ¨Administrative employee needed, half day¨. José, with his résumé, shows up for the interview. The employer tells him that he needs a person to work all day but he is going to “whiten” half a day and the rest will be paid “in black”, the vacations will not be paid either.

Laws that protect workers

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that regulates the right to overtime pay in Arizona. FLSA ensures that if you work more than 40 hours per week, then you are paid at least time and a half for that overtime. While some exceptions apply to this law, do not take your employer’s word for it if they tell you that FLSA does not apply to you. Get the facts about your right to overtime pay and talk to an Arizona overtime rights attorney.

In addition, even if a company is not covered, individual employees are protected by the FLSA if their work regularly consists of interstate commerce, or the production of goods for commerce.

This includes employees who produce goods that may be shipped out of state, do business with out-of-state persons, handle records of interstate transactions, travel to other states for work, or work in buildings where goods are produced for out-of-state commerce.

U.S. legal benefits

With only a few exceptions, all workers, including undocumented workers, have the same basic rights as other workers, regardless of their immigration status. There are different types of laws that contain these rights. This section provides a general summary of some of these laws.

The NLRA is a federal law and is enforced by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). If an undocumented worker feels that his or her rights have been violated, he or she can file a complaint here against an employer or union organization.

Title VII is a federal law and is enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). If an undocumented worker believes he or she has been discriminated against because of race, color, sex, religion or national origin, he or she may file charges with the EEOC within 180 days of the alleged act of discrimination.
