Overtime & Minimum Wage/
who refuses to provide proper compensation for your hard work.
At Feldman Legal Group in Tampa, our firm represents Tampa-area employees so that they can obtain the wages and overtime that they have earned. Our Florida overtime and minimum wage claim attorneys draw upon more than 20 years of experience helping clients enforce their rights under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and minimum wage laws. Having secured millions of dollars from reluctant employers, we understand how to help you secure the wages you are entitled to.
Advocates in minimum wage and overtime cases
The Florida minimum wage is $8.25 per hour for the first 40 hours worked in a week. After that, most hourly workers are entitled to a 50 percent overtime premium, although exceptions exist. If you are not being properly paid for the hours you’ve worked, we can help. Our firm provides detailed advice on issues relating to:
Certain types of employees, such as those who perform managerial or supervisory work, may be considered exempt and therefore excluded from overtime protection. Some employers try to evade paying overtime by unlawfully including some hourly workers as exempt employees.
Workers Who Receive Tips
Waiters and other service workers who are tipped by customers can be paid a salary as low as $5.23 per hour as long as their tip money brings their total hourly compensation to at least $8.25.
New Federal Rules
A May 2016 change in federal rules greatly expands the number of workers entitled to overtime pay. Starting in December 2016, employees making up to $913/week are now eligible for overtime benefits. Our firm can advise you of the effect this and other revisions in the law might have on your case.
Even though minimum wage and overtime are governed by law, you cannot count on your employer to advise you of your rights. If you suspect that you are not being paid fairly, we will investigate the matter on your behalf and diligently work to secure your rightful compensation. Request a free assessment.

What Our Clients Say/
Mr. Feldman and his staff are a great law firm to work with. Mr. Feldman took my medical case when i had been turned down by so many other attorneys. Mr. Feldman’s put me at ease when I thought all was lost. Thanks to Mr. Feldman and his staff I won my case.
All I can say is Great Job! After speaking with Mitch Feldman and Roxanna, after I said Yes to their services, our case went on auto pilot (for me). They took care of everything. Once an offer was made, Mitch said we can do better and we did. Soon after, a check arrived in our mailbox. Recommending this Law Firm seems to be a no brainer for anyone who wants to Win.
Mr. Feldman let opposing counsel know that he wasn’t going to back down no matter what they threw at him, through his expertise, thoroughness and dogged tenacity. He brought my case to a satisfying conclusion. You can trust this highly intelligent and knowledgeable attorney. He’s nice too.
Mitchel L. Feldman is an excellent attorney. He actually listens to you and he is prompt with a response. It is amazing in today’s world of instant communication that so few actually respond in a prompt manner and even if they do, they don’t actually listen to what you have to say. Thank you Mr. Feldman for being prompt, attentive, concise and solving my contractual issue without litigation.
