Filing an Overtime or Wage Retaliation Claim
Employers are forbidden from taking retaliatory action against employees who make complaints about their wages or lack of proper overtime compensation. That being said, you may be able to file a claim against your employer if you have been retaliated against for complaining about your employer’s failure to pay the overtime wages you earned.
Claiming Compensation with an Overtime/Wage Retaliation Claim
Though the laws are clear about what is and what is not illegal, it will be in your best interests to speak with an attorney about the particulars of your claim before you do anything. Though every case will be unique, employers are generally forbidden from taking retaliatory action against any employee who engages in the following behaviors:
- Complaining to a manager or supervisor about unpaid overtime wages
- Asserting their right to overtime pay as defined by law
Whatever the particulars of your claim happen to be, our attorneys can evaluate your claim and then help you take the legal action necessary to hold your employer financially accountable for all your pain and suffering.
