Legal Help For Employees’ Wage And Hour Claims
As an employee, you’re entitled to fair wages that comply with federal and state minimum wage laws. Depending on your employment status, you may also have the right to meal breaks, rest breaks and overtime pay.
If you believe your rights have been violated, contact me, lawyer Mazen Khatib. I’m an employment lawyer at Khatib Law, APC. I represent only employees, never employers, and I’m passionate about standing up for their rights.
Common Wage And Hour Violations
Examples of wage and hour violations include:
- Not paying minimum wage
- Not paying overtime
- Misclassifying employees as independent contractors (to avoid paying overtime)
- Mishandling employee tips
- Making employees clock in after their work duties have already started
- Making unpermitted deductions from employee wages
Sadly, many employers who break wage and hour laws are banking on the likelihood that their workers don’t know about their rights and won’t take action. That’s why I offer free consultations to educate workers about their rights and empower them to hold unethical employers accountable.
