Legal Answers
39 Questions Answered

Q. I’m not getting paid (in La.) due to the govt shutdown, yet I’m being asked to do some work without pay. Is that legal?
A: Generally, it is not legal for a company to require you to work without pay. There are some unique aspects to this rule given the government shutdown; however, even the government is required to pay people on time, and the shutdown does not excuse them from lawsuits for unpaid wages. I would need to know more details about the specifics of your claim to give a clear answer. I would suggest contacting a local employment attorney to discuss.
Q. I have a co worker that is taking our company to court for not paying overtime and wonder if I'm able to jump in on it
A: That depends. Some unpaid overtime lawsuits are filed as "collective actions," which means that other co-workers can ask the court to join the suit. Other lawsuits are filed just on behalf of one individual. I would need to know more about your co-worker's lawsuit to answer this question.
Q. If someone works in a retail gas station & works 56 hrs a week & doesn't get paid overtime. Is that illegal?
A: In most cases, yes, unless the individual is a genuine supervisory employee who is paid at least $455 a week, guaranteed, and has a primary duty of supervising others rather than performing manual work. You should speak to a local employment attorney about your options.
