Seeking Payment in Unpaid Overtime Disputes
If you are paid hourly and you have worked over 40 hours in one work week, you deserve to be paid overtime wages for the extra hours you worked. This includes being paid for time you work through your meal break, waiting to clock in, and working at home or while on call. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), that payment must be included in the paycheck that covers the time period during which you worked overtime. If those wages are not listed on your paycheck, do not wait to raise the issue.
If you have tried to speak with your employer about the unpaid overtime, but have received no response or have been told numerous times that the money is on its way, you may want to consider involving an attorney. An experienced attorney can represent your interests and ensure your rights to the wages you have earned are not waived.
If we are unable to work with your employer in negotiations, mediation or arbitration, we can file suit to obtain the financial compensation you deserve. Aside from unpaid overtime or other wages, we can also seek other monetary damages, such as attorney fees.
