How Much Should You Have Been Paid?

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a long-established federal law that imposes some very specific requirements on employers to pay employees properly.

Our law firm has the litigation skills to challenge all types of FLSA violations. These include:

  • Misclassification of an employee as an independent contractor

  • Failure to pay minimum pages
  • Failure to pay overtime
  • Unpaid wages or wage theft

Employers don't necessarily violate these laws out of malice. Sometimes it is ignorance of what the law requires. But regardless of why it happened, we have the proven ability to advocate strongly for the compensation you have coming to you.

Sometimes FLSA are obvious. But if you are unsure of what your rights are, it's also important to get legal counsel. Overtime laws, for example, are changing, and you may be entitled to more legal protections than you think.
