Counsel and Representation for Employees and Employers
Whether you believe you have been victimized by unfair workplace treatment and failure to pay proper compensation or you are a business owner or corporate attorney in need of defense in a wage-and-hour matter, we can help. Our Tampa employment lawyers understand the Florida state and federal laws relevant to employee compensation, which prepares us well to analyze your case and identify the best approach to achieving positive resolution.
Valid, actionable wage-and-hour claims can arise under a variety of circumstances. Complex issues and conflicting views of the facts often arise in cases involving allegations of:
- Requiring employees to work overtime without proper compensation
- Failure to pay workers the applicable minimum wage
- Denial of meal breaks
- Improper classification of hourly workers as "exempt" from overtime pay or misclassification of employees as independent contractors
Compensation for workers victimized by illegal wage and hour practices who file independent or class-action lawsuits may include recovery of back-due wages and significant other compensatory or even punitive financial damages. If a worker is illegally fired for filing a grievance or reporting suspected employment law violations to authorities, an additional claim of wrongful termination may raise the stakes even higher.
