Arizona Overtime Disputes Attorneys
National FLSA Wage and Overtime Lawyers
An employee who works a minimum amount of hours, generally is entitled to be paid for that time. While that seems like a simple concept, many employers still find ways to deny hardworking employees all of the wages they earn and are entitled to receive. At Martin & Bonnett PLLC in Phoenix, we diligently represent clients who are involved in overtime disputes and wage and hour claims or have been misclassified as being exempt from these legal requirements.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) governs wages, overtime and salary disputes. These claims are usually brought before a federal court. Securing the services of an attorney with experience will greatly enhance your chances of recovering all wages, salary and overtime you are entitled to receive. At Martin & Bonnett PLLC, we are one of the preeminent employment law firms in Phoenix, representing clients in federal and state courts wage and hour litigation. Our attorneys have mediated and litigated individual and class claims.
Employees who are not exempt from overtime laws should never be asked to work off the clock or have their breaks or lunch times considered as time they are at work. We have successfully handled cases where employees were deprived of the right to leave their work premises during lunch or break, yet were denied pay for this time.
Wage and Hour Claims
Wage and hour claims result from employers not paying in a timely manner. You are entitled to receive your pay checks within a certain amount of time set by law. Delays beyond that time are violations of state law. Management-level employees are often wrongfully denied earned bonuses and commissions, an integral part of the compensation, because they left their employer for another job.
Experience in Employment Law Litigation, Mediation and Negotiation
Employees at all levels who wrongly are denied wages by their employer can rely on our firm for diligent representation and attention to all the details. In addition to mediating and litigating disputes, we also have experience in negotiating severance agreements and benefit packages for departing employees.
