Resolving Wage And Hour Disputes For Workers
You naturally expect to be paid for the hours you put in at work. If your employer is denying you overtime pay, forcing you to work through meal breaks or is misclassifying your employment status to try to pay you less, you could be entitled to substantial compensation. But you will not know for sure until you discuss your experience with a qualified employment law attorney.
Hantzes & Associates has more than 35 years of combined experience in employment law. Our attorneys represent workers in Washington, D.C., and Virginia, and have a long track record of success handling employment law disputes on behalf of employees.
Why Wage And Hour Violations Matter
Wage and hour disputes can dramatically affect your income. For example, if your employer misclassifies you as an exempt employee, you could be denied your rightful overtime pay. Being ordered to work through meal and rest breaks can also reduce your salary. With your fundamental rights as a worker at stake, you need to know where you stand.
Among the wage and hour matters we can represent you in, there are:
- Unpaid overtime
- Being paid below minimum wage
- Unpaid severance
- Bounced or unissued paychecks
- Misclassification of employment status, specifically claiming you are exempt from wage and hour laws
- Nonreimbursement of work-related expenses, such as travel expenses
We are prepared to help you with all wage and hour-related violations your employer has committed.
