Wages, Labor & Employment
Wages and Hours Claims
Federal and state wage and hour laws specifically define how an employer must pay an employee. Quite often, however, employers ignore those rules, to the detriment of the employee.
There are legal consequences to employers by way of penalties or back pay owed to employees in violation of the wage and hour laws. If you are an employee who has not been paid properly for overtime, commissions, expenses, or have otherwise been the victim of illegal employment practices, we can help.
We can determine whether you have a wage and hour claim and whether you may be entitled to compensation.
Labor and Employment Claims
If you are an employee who feels you have been treated unfairly in the workplace, or wrongfully terminated, we can help you determine whether you should take legal action.
Unfair treatment does not necessarily mean there has been unlawful treatment or that you have a claim. That is why it is important that you consult us as soon as possible if you think you have an employment claim.
