Unpaid Overtime Pay
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, you are entitled to overtime pay for hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a week or 10 hours in a day. However, some employers attempt to get around the overtime requirement by:
- Misclassifying you as an exempt employee who is not eligible for overtime
- Paying you a salary instead of hourly wage, even though you are nonexempt employee
- Asking you to work off the clock
Many unpaid commission cases occur when an employer holds up an employee’s final paycheck following a job termination. Employers may also illegally withhold commission payment.
If we believe your case is strong enough, our law firm handles unpaid commission and overtime cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not have to pay us any money upfront. Our fees, if we are successful, will be paid by your employer.
