We represent employees throughout New Jersey who have been denied overtime pay, refused overtime pay, misclassified as exempt for overtime, misclassified as professional employees, salaried employees who are actually entitled to overtime pay, and other overtime law violations by employers in New Jersey and can help collect the unpaid overtime.
Federal and New Jersey overtime law guarantees you the right to fair wages. Unfortunately, employers too often disregard their legal duty to provide you the overtime pay and compensation you deserve.
If you are an hourly or salaried employee and have been denied a rightful claim to overtime, or you have otherwise not been properly compensated for work you have done, you have rights. Regardless of whether you have been wrongfully labeled exempt from coverage under the Fair Labor Standards Act (the FLSA) or you have been misclassified as an independent contractor and not eligible for overtime or retirement benefits, we can help you get full and fair compensation for your lost wages and overtime.
We represent both current and former employees in matters involving wage and hour claims and unfair treatment under the Fair Labor Standards Act (the FLSA). Wages and overtime earned by most employees are protected by the provisions of the FLSA. With some exceptions, federal law requires that employees who work in excess of 40 hours per week be paid overtime. New Jersey also has a state wage payment statute, governing issues like frequency of pay, deductions and changes in an employee’s rate of pay.
Generally speaking, nearly all hourly-paid workers are entitled to overtime. Contrary to popular belief, even some salaried employees can claim overtime. We understand the provisions of the federal and state wage payment statutes and works with individuals to get full and fair compensation for wage and hour violations they have suffered.
We can help explain the the overtime pay laws, overtime regulations and overtime rules.
