Wage & Hour/Overtime

Is your employer failing to pay you all of the wages that you are entitled to receive under the law? Federal law, and many state laws, require employers to pay most employees a minimum wage and overtime pay for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a workweek. However, certain types of employees are exempt from receiving a minimum wage and/or overtime pay.

Due to the complexity of federal laws and regulations governing this area, many companies make mistakes when determining whether an employee is entitled to receive minimum wage and/or overtime pay. For example, the fact that an employee is paid a salary does not alone prevent that employee from receiving overtime pay. Yet many companies erroneously believe that a salaried employee is not entitled to overtime pay.

If you believe that you have not received all the wages that you are legally entitled to receive, including overtime pay, please feel free to contact our firm. The Blackburn Law Firm offers traditional legal representation or more discrete guidance and coaching via our Employee Advocate Program. We are experienced in helping employees and executives receive full compensation for their work.
