Representing Victims of Unpaid Overtime and Wage Violations

Computer and ITComputer and IT

Many computer workers believe they are not due overtime because they’ve heard about an exemption called the “computer professional exemption.” It certainly sounds like it applies to all computer workers. However, that title was a poor choice of words by the legislature. Despite the title of the exemption, many employees who work with computers as part of their job are still eligible for overtime pay…

Service TechniciansService Technicians

Service technicians don't have a typical 9 to 5 job. They don't have a predictable schedule and cannot just leave in the middle of a job because they have worked too many hours. However, many employers attempt to pay them as such. These employers try to deprive repair technicians of the pay to which they are lawfully entitled by withholding overtime or convincing them that they are not eligible to receive overtime…

Independent ContractorsIndependent Contractors

You may not think being classified as an independent contractor is a big deal, but in the United States, fraudulent classification of employees as "independent contractors" is on the rise. One of the most common tactics employers use to save money and avoid paying federal taxes is to label their employees "independent contractors." Order our free wage and overtime guide to learn about these cases.

Cable InstallersCable Installers

Cable TV and satellite installation companies frequently pay their installers and technicians on a "piece rate" basis. The company must take into consideration all compensation earned in a workweek when an employee works more than 40 hours so that the proper overtime pay may be calculated. Most employers who pay on a piece rate fail to track all time worked…

Sales RepresentativesSales Representatives

If you are a sales representative and your employer does not pay you overtime you may be getting cheated on your paycheck every month! Many employers will try and tell sales reps that they are exempt, or that since they are paid a salary they cannot receive overtime. This is simply not true.

Tipped EmployeesTipped Employees

If you are classified as a tipped employee, your tips may be counted as wages for purposes of meeting the minimum wage requirement of $7.25 per hour. This is known as a “tip credit” because your employer receives a “credit” toward the minimum wage requirements. However, this tip credit does not free your employer of their obligation to pay you a direct wage...


If you are a type of nurse, such as a registered nurse (RN) or a licensed practical nurse (LPN) who is paid on an hourly basis the chances are very likely that you are eligible to receive overtime pay. The answer depends upon the particular facts of your case…

Retail Store EmployeesRetail Store Employees

The retail sales environment is filled with a multitude of wage violations. In order to stay within their store’s budgeted number of labor hours, many managers require employees to finish work off-the-clock, punish employees for working overtime, or alter time reports…

Accountants & AuditorsAccountants & Auditors

Because these positions are widely referred to as “white collar”, you might have believed that this means you are not eligible to receive overtime, especially if your job title contains words such as “senior,” “executive,” or “professional.” Judging by recent developments, accountants everywhere would do well to re-examine the exact nature of their job duties to make sure that their employers have not misclassified them as being “exempt” from overtime compensation…

Bookkeepers & ClerksBookkeepers & Clerks

Bookkeepers keep records of a business’ day-to-day financial transactions. But they typically do not exercise independent discretion and judgment in their job.
