Wage and Overtime Claims
If you believe you are not being paid the correct hourly amount, including overtime, we can help you. It is against the law for an employer to pay less than the minimum wage and to deny you overtime compensation. Overtime compensation is defined as time and a half over 40 hours each week. Courts have awarded damages at twice the amount the wages not paid to employees.
Employers also try to designate employees as salaried workers, when in fact they should be classified as hourly. Employers do this to avoid paying employees overtime.
Also, employers also abuse employees and violate state and federal law by demanding employees be on-call and engaged to be waiting, but do not pay the employee’s overtime compensation.
If you are experiencing any of the above situations, we can help. Please contact our employment lawyers at Carey & Associates P.C. at 203-255-4150 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
