WAGE AND HOUR

At Edwards Kirby, we have vast experience representing hard-working people who are being cheated out of their hard-earned wages. We are committed to ensuring employers fully and properly compensate employees for their hard work.

 

Are you being paid for your overtime hours?  Many employees are entitled to premium overtime pay for every hour over 40 worked in a week.  For overtime, an employee receives one-and-a-half times the hourly wage. These standards apply to more than 130 million employees nationwide, working for both private and public employers – you may be one of them.

 

Often, however, employers unlawfully deny employees wages they have earned, particularly overtime wages.  They use a number of unfair and deceptive tactics, including:

 

  • Having employees clock in late or clock out early, denying them pay for the full hours worked.
  • Paying employees standard wages, instead of time-and-a-half, for overtime hours worked.
  • Misclassifying employees as “exempt” to avoid paying them at the legally required overtime rate.
  • Refusing to provide appropriate meal and rest breaks for employees.

 

We are some of the most highly acclaimed and experienced trial lawyers in America.  We represent individuals who have been deprived of their wages.  We protect employee rights and fight for fair wages.
