What We Do

According to the Economic Policy Institute, billions of dollars are stolen by employers from their employees every year. Employers steal wages in a variety of ways, including: making employees work off the clock and not paying overtime, taking tips meant for employees, and misclassifying employees as independent contractors. 

Since 1938, the Federal Government has outlawed these practices with the Fair Labor Standards Act (“The FLSA”). The FLSA guarantees employees a minimum wage and overtime for hours worked over 40. The law also requires employers to give employees the tips that the employees earn.

Joe Buenker and Tom Padgett, the attorneys of The Buenker Law Firm, dedicate their legal practice to helping workers recover the wages they are due. The Buenker Law Firm has helped workers in all industries, from waiters to oilfield workers, nurses to janitors, construction workers to pest control technicians, and many others. The Buenker Law Firm has filed numerous lawsuits across the country for both individual workers and groups of workers.  If you believe that you have been improperly paid and that you may be owed overtime pay, minimum wages, stolen tips, or unpaid commissions, contact The Buenker Law Firm for a free consultation and evaluation of your potential claim. You can call the firm at (866) BUENKER or send us an email by clicking here.
