One of the fastest growing areas of employment related disputes for employers and employees are wage and hour lawsuits. The team of attorneys in our Wage and Hour Practice Group has extensive experience handling both federal claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state wage and hour law claims. The laws effecting employee compensation are complex and change frequently. Our team of attorneys is knowledgeable and we help each client navigate through the complexities of their case with a customized legal strategy. We have represented and advised both employees and employers in wage and hour matters. If you are an employee we can assist you with asserting your rights to make sure your employer meets their obligation on matters such as:
- Unpaid Overtime
- Nonpayment of Wages
- Tip violations
- Failure to pay the prevailing wage
- Hourly, Salaried and 1099 misclassifications Failure to provide meal breaks
- Unpaid internships
- Off the clock work
We strive to proactively assist employers by making sure they are in compliance with wage and hour laws before a violation occurs to reduce the risk of costly litigation. We do not adopt a one-size-fits all approach to address the legal needs of our clients. A thorough investigation is conducted for each case that allows us to develop the best defense and customized legal strategy to achieve positive results. Our team of attorneys is experienced in defending employers against individual claims, as well as collective and class actions. We have also provided counsel and representation for clients in investigations by state and federal labor departments.
