Construction crews who built Marlin Stadium still waiting for back pay

Workers worked around the clock to complete the construction of Miami’s newest stadium.  Although the stadium was backed by over $500 million in taxpayer funding, many construction laborers have yet to get paid for backpay which includes overtime pay.  More than 40 workers filed a civil lawsuit against the subcontractor company, AGC Consulting Civil Engineers and General Contractors Inc. under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).  Pursuant to the FLSA, unless exempt, employees covered by the Act must receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 in a workweek at a rate not less than time and one-half their regular rates of pay. There is no limit in the Act on the number of hours employees aged 16 and older may work in any workweek. The Act does not require overtime pay for work on Saturdays, Sundays, holidays, or regular days of rest, unless overtime is worked on such days.  If you were hired to work on a project and have not been paid for work performed on a project, including overtime, please contact the attorneys at the Carr Law Firm, P.A. to find out if you are exempt or considered non-exempt under the FLSA and therefore entitled to overtime pay.  Even if you are considered exempt, you may be entitled to file suit for breach of contract damages.
