Overtime & Unpaid Wage Dispute Information

Many people do not realize they are not being paid the wages that are owed them. In fact, thousands of workers are not being paid the overtime wages they deserve. Your employer may be holding back rightfully earned money from you for extra time you put in at work, and you may feel too intimated to demand the wages you are owed. In many cases, people who are owed overtime wages want to fight for their rights at work, but are afraid of being reprimanded or fired. You may have already asked for fair pay but your employer has given you an excuse as to why you did not technically earn overtime, even though you know very well you did. Do not be bullied by your employer. You deserve to be paid fairly for the work you have done, and now is the time to be compensated for your work. The overtime lawyers at Dunham & Jones represents clients who are not being paid for the overtime work they have put in.

Overtime laws state that it is illegal for an employer to punish an employee who is requesting fair pay, and companies can receive both criminal and civil punishments for trying to do so. Overtime pay laws protect workers from being retaliated against by their employers, but an overtime attorney can ensure you get paid for all the hours you put in at work. The overtime attorneys at Dunham & Jones will walk you through the process of how to get full compensation from your employer, and answer all questions you may have.

As with many government institutions, the Department of Labor can be bureaucratic and full of red tape. Incompetence or ignorance of the D.O.L. can cause you to not receive what you are owed. To get immediate answers regarding your unpaid wages, wage disputes, overtime wages, overtime laws, or the Fair Labor Standards Act call the overtime lawyers at Dunham & Jones, who will investigate your case and respond with answers and results.

If you feel you are owed money, or if it seems like your paycheck does not reflect the hours you put in, then you need to speak with an overtime lawyer. Do not wait to make a claim because you may miss important deadlines to file.

Many different kinds of workers find themselves in difficult and complex wage dispute situations. Even large corporations are guilty of not paying their workers fairly, and individuals may feel powerless to protect their rights. However, the overtime pay laws are on your side, because most workers are protected under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

If your employer gave you comp time instead of overtime, this is almost never a permissible practice unless you are working for the government. You may be labeled an independent contractor, but your job may not actually meet the specific legal requirements of an independent contractor. Independent contractors are not eligible for overtime pay and lose many protections from the FLSA.

Sometimes, employers inaccurately calculate overtime wages, which is supposed to be 1.5 times your regular hourly wages. Employers are also known to misclassify their employees as exempt, when they do not truly meet all qualifications for exemption.

You can recover unpaid overtime wages for the work you did two years prior to filing your claim, and sometimes you can even recover three years of wages. To meet these deadlines and improve your chance of recovering the maximum amount of your unpaid wages, you should work with an experienced employment attorney.

It is illegal for an employer to punish an employee who is requesting fair pay, and companies can receive both criminal and civil punishments for trying to do so.
