After a Wage Theft, Get What’s Fair

You expect—and deserve—to get paid for the work you do.

If your employer tries to pay you less—by refusing to pay for every hour you worked or refusing to pay overtime for work you did beyond 40 hours a week—don’t accept it.

In some cases, it’s not only unfair, it may be illegal; your employer may be violating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

Get an experienced Ohio wage lawyer to step in, fight for the pay you’ve earned, and set things right.

    Do I Have a Denial of Wages Case?

    If your employer fails to pay you, they may be violating the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

    Any of these situations could give you a claim against your employer:

    • You only got paid for some days that you worked, but not all of them.
    • You’re eligible for overtime pay but didn’t get paid for working beyond 40 hours per week.
    • Your employer shorted your pay by wrongly classifying you as an independent contractor.
    • You got paid less than the minimum wage set by law.

    Sometimes, you aren’t the only one at your job experiencing a pay problem.

    We’ve seen cases where construction workers, factory workers or manufacturing workers, for example, suffered pay deficiencies across a whole company.

    Your case may be the beginning of a class action lawsuit on behalf of a large group of workers. With a case like that, you could help fix stubborn problems at work.

    Some types of jobs, like farm workers and truck drivers, also have special rules for proper pay practices. And laws can apply differently, depending on the size of your company.

    You can get started figuring out what kind of case you have by getting the lawyers at HNB to evaluate your case.

    Steps to Your Wage Theft Claim

    When you’ve got a serious dispute with your employer, your complaint can go through three phases:

    1) Negotiating with the employer: When an employer fails to pay you—or illegally discriminates against you in another way—an attorney can negotiate to correct the situation.

    2) Filing a complaint with regulatory agencies like the federal Department of Labor.

    3) Filing a lawsuit in state or federal court.

    You can feel powerless against an employer. But they have no right to exploit you by making you work for free.

    It’s wrong. And you don’t have to take it.
