Wage and overtime theft is all too common in GA and other states. For instance, did you know that research suggests that 80% of employees are entitled to overtime, but about 70% of employers are not properly paying employees?
If you can answer yes to any question, then you might want to contact us for a free consultation. Answering yes does not mean you have a claim, or answering no to all questions does not mean you do not have a claim. But, answering yes indicates it might be worth your time to have a free consultation. This is because unlike other forms of theft, overtime theft is often not obvious, and many employees are oblivious to the theft. For instance, many people assume that because they receive a salary they are not entitled to overtime. But, that is often false. And, many people assume because the hours on their check are right, they are being paid correctly. That is also often false.
At the end of the day, overtime theft law is very complex, and that is why our attorneys offer free consultations. And if we determine you have a case we can help you with, you never pay our attorneys fee unless you win or collect a settlement–if we win or collect a settlement, your employer or former employer usually pays the fees pursuant to the law. * Call us at (404) 585-8095 to schedule a free consultation.
You might be able to bring claims against your former employers too, if the violations have occurred within the past 2 or 3 years, depending on the facts. The situation can even often be resolved without a lawsuit.
Often, we can resolve cases without filing a lawsuit. In fact, we can often “fast track” wage claims, either getting a lawsuit filed or settlement demand letter sent within 14 days of your first interview.
There could be other signs, and wage and overtime law can be complex. So, we encourage you to contact us today if you would like a free consultation.
One of the most common wage and hour violations involves employees being misclassified as exempt from the overtime laws. An employer’s classification is not the end of the story. Even if an employer has classified you as exempt from overtime, you still might be non-exempt. This could even be the case if you are paid on a salary basis. A common example of misclassified employees are employees who are classified as supervisors although they do not have the power to hire or fire. These individuals are often entitled to overtime.
Whether an employee is “exempt” or “nonexempt” is generally very fact specific, and job titles alone are not sufficient to determine the matter. Nonetheless, courts have found that in some circumstances the following types of employees are “nonexempt” and must be paid overtime even if they are salaried or paid on a non-hourly basis:
Of course, many more types of employees are “nonexempt,” and not all of these types of employees are always “nonexempt”—again it is a specific factual issue in many cases, and you would like benefit from contacting an overtime attorney. If you feel you have been wronged, you are welcome to contact us today for a free consultation.
* = “No Legal Fee Unless You Win or Collect” and “you never pay our attorneys fee unless you win or collect a settlement” refers only to fees charged by the attorney. Court costs and other additional expenses of legal action usually must be paid by the client. Contingent fees are not permitted in all types of cases.
