Wage & Hour Claims
The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) grants employees important rights regarding wages and working hours. If your employer has violated your rights, you may be entitled to bring a claim. You may be able to recover not only unpaid wages, but also fines and additional monetary damages, depending on the circumstances.
At Watkins & Letofsky, LLP, we help employees enforce their rights through wage and hour claims. Our lawyers are well-versed in the intricacies of state and federal employment law. As a full-service litigation firm, we are well-equipped to advance our clients’ interests through vigorous courtroom advocacy as well as strategic settlement negotiation.
Protecting Your Rights To Fair Compensation
Wage and hour claims can arise from a broad range of employer violations, including:
- Failure to pay overtime
- Failure to pay minimum wage
- Failure to pay for driving time on the job
- Failure to provide meal and rest breaks
- Failure to pay for “on-call” periods
Federal law mandates overtime pay at the rate of time and a half for certain employees. With the rising costs of health care and other expenses, employers sometimes attempt to trim costs by misclassifying employees as independent contractors or as employees who are exempt from overtime pay. Such violations of nonexempt employees’ rights can result in significant amounts of unpaid compensation.
Our legal team can help you analyze whether you are entitled to financial recovery and develop a course of action for pursuing a claim. Together, our attorneys have decades of collective experience. We work collaboratively to provide efficient, high-quality legal services.
