You devote your time and energy to your career in exchange for financial compensation and other benefits. When you are not paid what you are owed, not paid on time, or denied overtime, there is a problem. There may also be a claim for a labor law violation that could result in financial compensation for the damages you have suffered.
At JKFM in Cleveland, we represent Ohio workers in wage and hour disputes involving violated labor laws, overtime disputes and other employment matters. We are skilled at efficiently resolving claims in this complex area of employment law and focus our efforts on maximizing compensation for workers who have been wronged by their employees.
Are You Being Paid According To The Law?
If you are an hourly employee, the law is very clear. You must be paid for every hour you work. No exceptions. No working off the clock. No working during your unpaid lunch break, and no working more than 40 hours in a week without receiving overtime pay.
There are some differences in the law pertaining to independent contractors but, in general, if you are experiencing any of the issues listed above it is worth seeking the advice of our experienced employment lawyers to make sure you are getting a fair shake from your employer.
Speaking Of Independent Contractors...
Is your employer holding you to the same expectations as hourly employees without providing you with the corresponding benefits package? This is illegal, as employers must maintain some separations between the roles of employees and independent contractors in the workplace.
