Our Practice Area: Wage and Hour Law
Our practice involves Wage and Hour Law. We help individual employees recover what they are due, including unpaid overtime wages. Some employees are required to work off-the-clock. One common violation occurs when employees pay commissions incorrectly during weeks an employee works overtime. Another results from unpaid lunch breaks. Many employees are misclassified as independent contractors so their employers do not have to pay them overtime. Other employees are paid a salary and considered exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), even though the law does not support their exempt status. As an experienced class and collective action attorneys, we bring the large lawsuits that make employers take notice, change their pay practices, and pay the money their employees are due.
Employment law is complicated. An attorney who focuses on wage and hour law is in the best position to recover your lost wages. Remember, employment claims are covered by statutes of limitations—that is, you have to file your case on time: If you wait too long, you may be unable to recover the past wages you were wrongfully denied. If you believe your rights have been violated by an employer, please contact us today, so we can help you recover everything you deserve.
