Your employer is required by law to compensate overtime hours at the rate

with federal wage laws.

a wage and hour claim against your employer. Attempting to settle this
matter on your own could lead to more headaches and delays. Our firm is

Do not let an employer abuse your labor.
Be aware of dishonest employers who try to find ways to avoid compensating
you for your hard work.
Examples of what employers often do to deprive you of your overtime wages include:
- Asking workers to take work home to finish
- Requesting that workers run work-related errands outside of work
- Deducting breaks that employees did not take, without their knowledge
- Misclassifying employees' exempt status
- Paying employees less than the state's minimum wage
