When you work hard at your job, you should expect that you will be paid and properly rewarded for your efforts. However, going above and beyond for your employer does not always pay off the way it should.
Although your employer may be legally obligated to pay you overtime, there are a variety of reasons they may fail to do so. For example, if they intentionally or mistakenly classified you as an exempt employee, you may find that you did not get paid for any or all of your overtime worked.
Take Legal Action Against Your Employer
If you believe that you have been wronged and are owed wages from your employer, you should not hesitate to speak with a lawyer from our team and retain our services. Although your employer may admit their mistake and simply pay you what you are owed, this is not always the case. You may have to file a wage and hour lawsuit to get sufficient compensation that you have worked for.
An unpaid overtime wage dispute may include cases that involve:
- Employer outright refusing to pay overtime wages
- Employer mistakenly classifying employee as exempt
- Employer intentionally classifying employee as exempt
- Employer who forces employee to work off the clock
