In 2007, the federal government passed a regulation that increased the federal minimum wage. Depending on the state you live in, however, the minimum wage laws can vary which would determine what the minimum wage would be. If your company is paying you less than the federal or state minimum wage amount, you may be qualified to file a lawsuit for all wages owed to you for the hours worked in addition to overtime you may be owed and potential punitive damages.

Did you know?
If you believe you are receiving less money than the federal or state minimum wage amount, you are likely not the only employee at your company with the same issue.
Don't be reluctant to come forward with a grievance. Minimum wage laws protect you from retaliation and you are qualified to receive a service award by initiating the class action lawsuit, which means the potential to collect more monetary compensation from the minimum wage law and employment lawsuit.
