Filing Claims

Kansas’ Statute of Limitations for overtime claims aligns with the Fair Labor Standards Act, requiring lawsuits for unpaid back overtime wages to be filed within two years of the employer’s violation. This means that a lawsuit filed today can only seek back overtime pay for the previous 2 (or sometimes 3) years.


Kansas Overtime Pay Laws

The FLSA mandates employers to pay to non-exempt employees overtime at one and a half times the regular rate for hours exceeding 40 per week. Additionally, certain employees, such as some salaried workers, are exempt from overtime pay.
