Experienced Lawyers for Overtime Claims
The following are examples of issues that can arise in an overtime case:
- Whether the employee is entitled to overtime
- Whether the employee works for the defendant
- Whether the employee’s position is exempt or nonexempt from the requirement to pay overtime
- Whether the employee was wrongly forced to work mandatory overtime
Our attorneys defend these cases both as individual lawsuits and as class actions involving numerous plaintiffs who have been similarly affected by an alleged violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act with respect to overtime pay.
Our experience in litigating unpaid overtime cases enables us to advise employers on whether positions should be classified as exempt or nonexempt.
