Overtime and Wage Theft
re you being forced to work off the clock and not being compensated for your time? Are you working overtime and not being paid time and half for your overtime? If so, then you may be a victim of wage theft. Federal and State Law both require that employees receive overtime unless you are exempt as a matter of law. Very few employees are exempt from overtime pay for having worked more than 40 hours per week. More than 50% of all employees are misclassified by their employer to receive overtime. If you have not been properly paid, then contact us.
We often find that service technicians, sales representatives, managers, offices assistants, retail employees, and even some professionals are misclassified as salary employees not receiving fair wages. We understand these situations and are here to help.
Can I Be Retaliated Against for Filing a Wage and Hour Claim?
t is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you or terminate you for filing an employment lawsuit. Examples of retaliation include firing or demoting workers, reducing hours, assigning undesirable shifts, cutting down job duties or purposely giving false performance reviews that negatively affect workers’ positions.
If your employer retaliates or fires you for filing an employment claim, you may be able to file a separate, individual lawsuit against your employer. Contact Pacin Levine, P.A. today to see if you could have your job reinstated or recover compensation due to your employer’s retaliation. Call us today at (800) 24-7-CRASH; (800) 247-2727.
