Phoenix Wage And Hour Lawyer

Going to work each day, performing your duties, and advancing the interests of your organization require commitment and dedication. Each day you go to work, you put the needs of your employer at or near the top of your priority list. It is unfair, then, when your employer does not follow through with its legal obligations to pay you for the services you have provided.

Wage and hour disputes occur frequently in the workplace and can involve a wide range of scenarios, including:

  • Refusal to pay overtime rates as required by law
  • Failure to pay at least minimum wage
  • Withholding of wages
  • Nonpayment of commission upon termination
  • Breach of contract 
  • Misclassification of employee’s legal status (for example, exempt vs. nonexempt)
  • Requests for an employee to work hours without pay

Luckily, our  Phoenix wage and hour lawyers are here to help.

We Help Arizona Employees with Wage and Hour Claims

Numerous laws protect your right to compensation for work you have performed. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and other fair labor laws establish minimum wage, overtime pay, and other standards affecting full-time and part-time workers in all areas of employment. Arizona employers are prohibited by law from withholding wages from active employees, fired employees, and employees who have left voluntarily. If wages are illegally withheld, employers may be liable for three times the amount of the unpaid wages (treble damages).

A Phoenix employment lawyer has represented numerous Arizona employees in wage and hour disputes. Many nurses and other employees are entitled to overtime pay. We can examine the facts of your wage and hour claim, determine whether you are owed compensation for work performed, and provide aggressive representation.
