Wage and Hour Claims
The lawyers at our law firm have represented hundreds clients with complex wage and hour claims, such as:
- Off-the-clock wage violations: Commonly, employees are expected to accomplish more work in less time. With high demands, hourly employees are often forced to work overtime in order to meet their deadlines, while not getting compensated for their work.
- Employee misclassifications: Intentionally or unintentionally, employers often misclassify contractors, non-exempt or exempt employees. The job duties someone performs — not their title — determines their employee classification and whether or not they should be compensated for overtime work.
- Meal and rest breaks: Employers can be held responsible for prohibiting employees from taking appropriate meal and rest breaks.
- Withholding bonuses or commissions: If bonuses or commissions are a part of someone's compensation, their employer can be held accountable for withholding these payments. Many employers illegally hold back bonuses and commissions if an employee leaves.
Each employment law attorney at our firm has an extensive background representing clients with other wage and hour law violations including illegal tip-sharing schemes, uniform deductions, dual-rate payment plans and final paycheck violations. We are committed to obtaining as much compensation as possible for our clients.
