I am an employer for a small business. If an employee signs an agreement with the company that clearly states "we do not pay overtime nor do we offer any type of benefits at this time" and works for the company for more than a year, can they still sue the company for unpaid wages?

Customer: Georgia
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Yes
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

Yes. Under FLSA the employee cannot waive the right to overtime. The agreement is void in regard to overtime.

Ok so this means that I will receive more suits in the future, however, I guess my next question is will I be expected to pay ALL monies owed at once or payment arrangements can be made?
