Overtime ClaimsIf you have not been paid for overtime work, we can help.
Some employers try to take advantage of employees by demanding overtime work without providing overtime compensation. Many employees do not even know that they are eligible for overtime pay. Even salaried employees might be eligible for overtime pay. In addition, businesses can be unscrupulous in developing dubious tactics to avoid paying overtime, such as by misclassifying employees, expecting an employee to work through meal and rest breaks, and claiming that comp time is offered in lieu of the required overtime pay.
Often, people come to our office because they have been terminated and they feel they may have a claim for wrongful termination.
