Scott & Winters Law Firm, LLC represents workers with wage and hour claims throughout the U.S.
Employees in Ohio are protected both through Ohio law and the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). These laws protect employees by requiring that employers pay a fair minimum wage, and overtime for non-exempt employees and that employers pay workers for all their labor. State and federal law also set other rules that employers must abide by, including regulations regarding paid breaks, travel pay, and compensation for commissions and bonuses. Some of the most common issues that we help employees with include:
There are various ways that employers can cheat their workers and keep them from paying an appropriate wage. This can include failing to record and report their work hours, using workers as independent contractors, taking away their tips, tip pooling, forcing off-the-clock work, and even deducting pay without proper consent.
The role of an attorney in an Ohio wage and hour law dispute is multifaceted. These claims are hard to investigate, but an attorney will use their resources to get to the bottom of what happened, gather the evidence needed to prove the employer’s liability, and begin negotiations to recover compensation on behalf of their client. This compensation can include:
Our team will work with trusted financial and economic experts who can adequately calculate how much compensation you are owed for your employer’s wage and hour violation.
Your attorney will also be a sympathetic listening ear. We understand that this is a challenging situation, and it can feel like an impossible task to go up against an employer, mainly if this means you will be facing retaliation.
If you or somebody you love has not been paid fairly at your job in Cleveland or throughout Ohio, the team at Scott & Winters Law Firm, LLC is here to help.
