Its been often said that employees are entitled to an honest day’s pay for an honest day’s work. That’s what our firm is dedicated to fighting for our clients. Whether its wage theft under state and local laws or unpaid overtime or minimum wage violations, we will fight to obtain an employee an honest day’s pay.

Overtime: Under federal law (FLSA) an employer must pay overtime (time and a half) for all time worked by their employees over 40 hours per week. All time worked means all the hours you are at work. For instance you are entitled to the time during which you clean up your worksite if requested by your employer. Or if you have to change into a uniform as part of the job, you should be paid for the time it takes to do so. Remember that you are entitled to be paid for all your time under most circumstances.

If an employer fails to pay you for the regular hours worked, you may be a victim of wage theft. We can help you recover this from your employer.
