Wages and Hours of Work - Oklahoma City
The Fair Labor Standards Act governs minimum wage and overtime pay standards as well as child labor and recordkeeping standards for most employers. In 1997, the federal minimum wage was set at $5.15 per hour worked. Oklahoma follows this law, but with some variation.
Employers with less than ten full time employees at any one location or employers with less than $100,000 gross sales may adopt a basic minimum rate of $2.00 per hour under Oklahoma state law. Minimum wage may be adjusted based on the age of the employee. Under the FLSA, employees under 20 years of age may be paid $4.25 an hour during the first 90 days of their employment. Additionally, wages are affected by employment circumstances such as tips and uniforms.

You deserve to be compensated appropriately based on your hours worked. A highly regarded and understanding expert can help you obtain the reparations you are entitled to. Call us today.
