Unpaid Wages

Have You Been denied overtime pay? Are your receiving the same exact hourly rate of pay even though you work more than 40 hours per week? If you answered yes than you may be entitled to overtime compensation. For The Employee is our motto. We work in Labor & Employment Law in State and Federal Court. We will work hard to get you paid the overtime or minimum wages owed. Even if you are paid in cash or a salary weekly, you may be entitled to time and a half wages for all of the hours you work over forty weekly.

Do you ever work “Off the Clock” hours or told to work without clocking in or punching in? If you answered yes then you may be entitled to unpaid overtime or straight time wages.

Have you been paid less hours than you actually work? If you answered yes then you may be entitled to overtime pay.

Are you ever paid in cash for hours over 40 weekly? If yes, you may be entitled to overtime pay.

Are lunch or dinner breaks deducted from your check? If yes, you may be entitled to overtime pay.

“Manager” or “Supervisor” titles do not automatically allow the company to pay you a salary. Call us to see if you may be entitled to overtime, even if you are paid a salary with a title.
