Our labor and employment law attorney can assist you with wage violation cases involving:

  • Straight Time for Overtime. Many employees throughout the United States are entitled to overtime compensation under federal or state overtime laws. When someone receives overtime pay, they get “time and a half,” or 1.5 times their base rate. Even if you are paid a salary, day rate, or on some other non-hourly basis,  the law specifies how to calculate your regular hourly rate for overtime purposes. “Straight time for overtime” occurs when an employee receives their regular rate of pay when they should be receiving overtime compensation. Employers may use various schemes to deny overtime pay or may simply refuse to follow the law.

  • Unpaid Time. Employees must be appropriately compensated for all hours worked. To that end, employers typically require employees covered by minimum wage and overtime laws to track their hours by clocking in and clocking out. These timesheets are used to determine how many hours an employee worked in a given day or workweek and therefore the amounts employees must be paid. They also help determine whether an employee is entitled to overtime pay. Unfortunately, some employers will go to great lengths to avoid paying overtime compensation. Common tactics employers use to undercount work time include "shaving” an employee’s hours once a timesheet has been submitted and implicitly or directly asking an employee to work “off-the-clock.” Read more.
