Wage and Hour Controversies | Discrimination or Harassment in the Workplace | Minimum Wage and Overtime Violations | Misclassification of Employees | Denial of Breaks

Recent high-profile cases have brought the unscrupulous wage and hour practices of many employers to light. Even though federal laws provide specific guidance regarding when overtime must be paid, as well as how employees are to be classified, many employers will still try to short-change their workers. Between 2007 and 2011, the Wage and Hour Division initiated nearly 70,000 enforcement actions related to alleged wage and hour violations, and found employer wrongdoing in three out of every four cases. If you have been the victim of a wage and hour violation under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the lawyers at Leeds Brown Law, PC, can help.
