Fighting For Fair Pay. Fighting For You.
If you have been paid unfairly – if your overtime work has gone unpaid, if you have been expected to work off the clock or if your employer has withheld the tips or breaks you deserve – it can seem impossible to right that wrong.

What Forms Can Wage And Hour Disputes Take?
There are a variety of laws that your employer is bound to, and violations of employment law can take many forms as a result. Wage and hour issues can include:
- Misclassification – Some employers unlawfully classify employees as independent contractors and, as a result, may owe those employees overtime pay, compensation for unpaid breaks and other damages.
- Failure to pay overtime or “off the clock” work – If an employer has asked you to work additional hours without pay or failed to pay you for overtime, that is unlawful.
- Meal/rest break issues – Employers may refuse to allow employees the breaks they are due for meals or rest, or avoid paying them for those breaks when lawfully required to do so.
- Improper tip withholding – There are laws that govern the tips that employees receive and employer-mandated tip pooling. If an employer has broken those laws, that tip withholding could be cause for a lawsuit.
If you are facing any of these wage issues, an attorney could be an essential guide to filing your wage claim. Your attorney can help you gather the documentation necessary to illustrate the unfair pay practice of your employer, complete your claim form and fight to get the pay you are due. We will work to negotiate a fair settlement and defend your claim in a court hearing if necessary.
