Under a federal law called the Fair Labor Standards Act, workers are entitled to be paid at least minimum wage for the work they perform. The law also requires employers to pay overtime when an employee works more than 40 hours in a week. Though these requirements are simple in principle, the reality is that wage and hour disputes can quickly become complex.

Wisconsin Attorneys Dedicated to Workers' Rights
Employees are cheated out of fair wages in countless ways. Employers often misclassify their employees as "independent contractors" or as "exempt" from the overtime rules. This is a way to avoid paying overtime. Other employers allow their employees to work off the clock, and even take illegal deductions from their paychecks. No matter the type of wage claim, our attorneys have the skill and experience to handle it effectively.
Does your employer expect you to:
- Work through your lunch break?
- Answer your phone or e-mail while at home?
- Travel between multiple work sites on your own time?
- Work overtime without extra compensation because you are "exempt" or "salaried"?
- Work so much that safety is becoming a concern?
- Work more than you are allowed to write down for pay?
- Work at home after hours?
- Work in the trucking industry against wage and hour regulations?
- Attend training without being paid?
Our lawyers can work with you to determine if you have a case. If multiple employees are being treated the same way, it may be possible to file a class action on behalf of the entire group.
