Wage & Hour
Federal and state laws have established minimum wage levels that apply to most employees. This includes both regular wages and overtime wages. Employees that have been denied overtime wages or have been underpaid can recover not only back pay, but they may also be entitled to other forms of compensation such as liquidated damages, attorney’s fees, and punitive damages. As employers it is extremely important that you are aware of your obligations; otherwise, you expose yourself to this type of liability. If you believe that you have been denied wages or that your wages have been unlawfully withheld, then you should contact an attorney immediately to discuss your rights. Our firm can assist you in a timely and effective recovery of your rightfully earned wages.
