Wage and Overtime Claims

Wage and Hour Claims for Underpaid Employees 

Everyday employees are stripped of their rights to minimum wage, proper overtime payments, bonuses, and commissions.  The Fair Labor Standards Act is designed to protect employees by governing wage and overtime law.  The FLSA defines the minimum wage, overtime, the 40 hour work week, hours worked, record keeping, and child labor laws.  

Listed below are a few common issues in wage and overtime litigation:



  • Employees not being properly compensated nor receiving overtime 
  • Tipped employees not receiving proper compensation 
  • Improper classification of independent contractors
  • Employees wrongfully classified as exempt employees 
  • Hours traveling, training, or being on call but not receiving                       compensation
