Our lawyers have collected millions of dollars in back wages for clients who have been wrongly denied overtime pay. We represent both individuals and classes (groups of employees with similar claims) in litigation to recover back pay. These include cases where employers underpay or refuse to pay wages, and cases where employers misclassify employees as exempt from overtime when they entitled to overtime pay based upon their actual job duties. If you have questions about how you are being paid, we would be happy to talk to you confidentially.
