Wage and Hour Claims
Have you been denied the wage or overtime compensation you rightfully deserve?
In the past decade, the job market has been impacted strongly by a fluctuating economic condition. This is relevant as the impact prompted layoffs, cost reduction, reclassification of employees, restructuring wage and hour policies, and the necessity of overtime payments. Most of these practices are completely legal and valid. However, unfortunately, there are employers who violate the terms and conditions included in the Fair Labor Standards Acts or FLSA.
All employers are liable to pay the rightful, fair, and timely compensation to all the employees they hire. Workers go into work every day, regardless of their classification, to perform the duties and meet the goals they were legally hired to complete. Unfortunately, some employers don’t follow through their end of the bargain and don’t provide the compensation they were legally bound for the services they received from the employees.
