Today on the Beasley Allen Report, host Gibson Vance interviews fellow Beasley Allen attorney Lance Gould about the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The Fair Labor Standards Act, originally passed in 1938, intends to prevent employers from taking advantage of their employees and establishes basic rights of employees.
For almost two decades as an attorney at Beasley Allen, Gould has focused his practice on consumer law, representing clients whose employers purposefully misclassify employees to avoid expenses or decline paying overtime wages, training pay, workers compensation benefits, certain taxes and other employee benefits. Gould emphasizes the fact that companies are stealing tax payer funds, which impacts programs funded by the government. Gibson and Gould also outline qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act and the Whistleblower Protection Act.
