Overtime Pay Disputes
Overtime Pay Disputes
Are you being shortchanged on your overtime pay?
Most employers gladly pay for overtime when it is necessary to complete a project on time, keep up with a high volume of work, make up for a staff shortage, or achieve other business goals. However, some companies implement all kinds of underhanded and illegal methods to avoid paying the overtime wages their employees deserve under the law.
When this happens, employees can and should involve an attorney.

Know Your Rights
With some exceptions for “exempt” positions, workers are entitled to time and a half pay any time they work more than 40 hours in one work week or 8 hours per day. Employees are entitled to double pay for hours over 12 in a day.
It is illegal for your employer to use any of the following tactics to withhold overtime pay:
- Forcing employees to work off the clock
- Averaging work hours over two weeks
- Claiming overtime was unauthorized
- Failing to pay workers for meetings, training, take-home work, or short breaks in an attempt to keep their hours down
- Paying workers in comp time rather than overtime wages
- Misclassifying employees as exempt—such as by giving an employee a management title with no management duties
If you even suspect that you are being unlawfully denied your overtime pay, we encourage you to contact us. During your free initial consultation, we will help you understand if the mistreatment you have experienced justifies legal action.
Now You May Wonder…
…Am I Taking a Risk by Filing an Overtime Claim?
Often, employees are afraid to take legal action against their employers—or even seek out information about a potential legal action—because they are afraid they will be punished. Don’t let this fear rob you of your rightful compensation! There is actually nothing to lose by pursuing an overtime claim, and potentially a lot to gain.
First of all, remember that all consultations with Fair Cases Law Group are confidential. We will not disclose anything you discuss to your employer or anyone else without your permission.
Secondly, remember that if you do decide to file a claim, it is illegal for your employer to punish you in any way. For example, if they cut your hours, demote you, or even fire you, this would be considered retaliation. Retaliation is illegal and would give you grounds for additional legal action against your employer.
