Accomplished Wage And Hours Dispute Lawyer Serving Clients In Hillsborough And Pinellas Counties
Are you being paid the right amount and on time every pay period? Are you permitted to take your scheduled breaks and lunch? Are you being properly compensated for overtime? If not, you may have the grounds for a valid wage and/or hours dispute lawsuit. Attorney Craig Berman has more than 25 years of legal experience and can help you fight for your rights as afforded under state and federal employment laws.
Fair Labor Standards Act
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was passed as a federal law in 1938 to protect the basic rights of American workers. Statutes pertaining to the minimum wage, overtime pay and record-keeping are addressed by the FLSA, and all employers are required to adhere to them.
Overtime Compensation Disputes
Some employers will try everything they can to avoid paying their employees overtime wages, which is wrong and illegal. If you feel you have been shorted or manipulated out of receiving overtime pay, attorney Berman can help you file a formal complaint with the right employment agency and take your employer to court in order to secure the overtime wages you have earned.
It is never acceptable for an employee to be denied the wages they have worked hard to earn. Even if the company is struggling financially, your employer must always pay your wages. If you are grappling with an employment law issue pertaining to unpaid wages, contact experienced employment lawyer Craig Berman today.
If you are laid off or resign, your employer may offer you a severance package. Severances are typically spelled out during termination discussions with concrete terms for both parties. If you are experiencing issues relative to a severance package, attorney Berman can help you navigate your legal options and proceed with the best plan of action for resolving the matter.
