The everyday stressors of our jobs can be a heavy burden for anyone. If the difficulties and pressures were not enough, too often employers fail to follow the obligations and responsibilities that they owe to their employees. Whether it be failing to pay an employee for their overtime worked, or wrongfully terminating an employee for an impermissible purpose, you may have a legal remedy for your employer’s failures.
Federal laws like the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA), as well as many state law equivalents, provide rights for employees to ensure they are not terminated wrongfully and that they are fairly paid for all “hours worked”, including overtime, paid-breaks, and any other unpaid wages. Often times, employees are unaware of the federal and state standards, and do not think of certain hours worked as compensable hours, or think they have no recourse after being let go. Nonetheless, we are all entitled to be compensated for the work we do, and Marcus & Zelman can help you to be made whole.
