Wage And Hour

Helping Workers Fight For All Earned Pay

Employees deserve to be paid for all of the work that they do. Unfortunately, a disturbingly large number of employers make choices that effectively deny their workers the full pay they are entitled to under the law.

Situations where employers fail to pay workers for all work performed include:

  • Failing to pay overtime for working more than 40 hours in a week
  • Failing to properly calculate overtime
  • Misclassifying workers as exempt from overtime
  • Misclassifying employees as independent contractors
  • Failing to pay for time spent gathering materials and otherwise preparing for the shift before it officially starts/clocking in
  • Failing to pay for working through lunch
  • Failing to pay for time spent completing the work of the day after the shift officially ends/punching out

If you have been the victim of wage theft, we can help you secure the full wages you should have been paid, plus additional compensation for the illegal treatment. We will examine all potential strategies for holding your employer accountable, including claims for violating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), all applicable state law provisions, as well as pursuing your rights to full payment under your individual employment contract.
