Thank you for the information. Although I don't see where you have asked a question, for now, in the interest of time, I will assume that you are asking what wage
laws require in these situations. The Federal Fair Labor Standards Act
, which Florida follows, says that although an employer is free to pay employees by the job or on commission, etc., their wages for the pay period
must average out to at least minimum wage
for all of the hours they worked.
So, your grandson, or his parents (or you), will want to add all of the pay that he receives in a workweek (or whatever the payperiod is) and then divide it by the number of hours he worked. If the gross pay does not average out to $8.05, then the employer owes him the difference between what he is getting paid and that amount. If the employer refuses, then your grandson and file a wage claim with the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. DOL or file suit in small claims court. I would suggest the wage claim since it is free and it has the weight of the Federal Government behind the investigation.
Please let me know if you need any clarification.
