Disputes Over Your Wages and Hours
If you are an hourly or salaried employee and notice your employer is taking advantage of you, it can have a dramatic effect on your financial and emotional well-being. Some disputes that fall in this category can include being denied overtime, unwarranted deductions from your pay, being underpaid for hours worked, being denied meal or rest periods, suffering financial loss from unreimbursed business expenses or corrupt employment practices, or being misclassified as a “contractor” under the law.
These violations can impact an employee’s ability to survive financially, function in a work environment, get the appropriate employment benefits, or remain safe while performing duties.
