Lost Wages & Overtime

Lost Wages & Overtime Claims

Florida state and federal laws protect the rights of workers. As an employee in the state of Florida, you have the right to be paid for every hour you work, receive overtime pay at the appropriate rate, and earn no less than the minimum wage for your labor. Unfortunately, not all employers adhere to labor laws, and you may be losing a significant portion of your paycheck to an unscrupulous employer. Such losses can have a significant impact on you and your family, but with help from our firm, you may be able to make a recovery.

You may have a valid claim if your employer:

  1. Owes you wages for work you did.
  2. Unfairly prevented you from receiving minimum wages.
  3. Has failed to pay you for overtime.

In certain cases your attorney’s fees and costs may even be covered by your employer as a result of seeking damages.

If you believe your employer owes you wages, contact us now and begin your claim today.
