Wage & Hour Law
We Recover the Overtime pay You earned
Employers are required to pay their employees for the wages they have earned. Unfortunately, sometimes that does not happen. Congress passed the Fair Labor Standards Act in 1938 (“FLSA”) to provide for a federal minimum wage and ensure overtime is paid at least at time and a half for all non-exempt employees who work more than 40 hours in a given work week. Many states have added additional protections regarding the payment of wages that provide an alternate means of recovery when an individual’s wages have been wrongfully withheld. We work to recover the wages you have earned, but which have not been paid.
