Does your employer owe YOU money? Many employers simply DO NOT pay their employees overtime. This is often because they find it cheaper to ignore the overtime laws and hope their employees don’t discover the fact that they are entitled to overtime. Sometimes, it is because the employer is not aware of or does not understand the overtime laws. Regardless of the reason for an employer’s failure to pay overtime, you need experienced professionals to help you right this wrong.

Unfortunately, it is common for employers to purposefully mischaracterize employees as exempt from overtime pay by making them salaried employees or characterizing them as managerial employees when they are not truly managers. If you have questions about your eligibility for overtime pay, we invite you to look through the FAQ’s and Common Misconceptions sections of this website. If you would like us to analyze your case free of charge, click here.

What are the benefits of hiring an experienced overtime lawyer?

The United States government enacted the FLSA to protect the rights of workers. However, the FLSA and the rules interpreting the FLSA are complex and often confusing. The rules were amended last year, causing additional confusion both among employees and employers. If you believe that your rights are being violated and that you are not obtaining the fair pay to which you are entitled, you need an experienced and aggressive law firm to represent you to recover the monies owed to you.
