Overtime and employment laws strive to safeguard worker wage and hour rights. Say you signed a document or other type of contract waiving your rest and meal breaks or right to be paid your earnings in a timely manner. Once, and if, a claim to recover those earnings is filed, your current or previous employer is most likely going to defend the filing by alleging that you signed away your wage and hour rights to a private action in court.
On the other hand, if your employer committed any of these types of income practices against you or your fellow co-workers, one of our experienced and skilled employment law attorneys may be able to assist you with fighting for your non-negotiable state and federal rights, which can’t be signed away with a waiver. We can help you recover monetary compensation that is rightfully owed to you.
