Overtime Wage & Hour Claims

Overtime Wage & Hour Claims

Many people are not aware that federal and state laws require employers to pay most employees 1.5 times their hourly rate for any time worked in excess of 40 hours in a week. Additionally, many overtime violations go unreported because the employee is afraid that they will be fired or demoted if they report an overtime violation.

If you are denied overtime payments or were not paid properly by your employer, the attorneys at Scott & Wallace can help. Federal law prohibits an employer from retaliating against you for bringing an overtime claim against them. The law protects employees from being fired, demoted, given less hours or given a less desirable work schedule in retaliation for bringing a wage and hour claim. Generally, there is a two-year statute of limitations on overtime cases, which means that an employee can recover the amount of money that he or she should have been paid for overtime during the past two years. However, if the employer purposely broke the law, then the employee may be able to recover monies owed for overtime worked over the past three years.


If you think that your employer has not paid you the required time and a half pay for overtime hours, contact an attorney at Scott & Wallace. We take our cases on a contingency fee, which means there is no financial risk to you if we do not recover money for you.
