Is Your Employer Paying You Fairly For Your Work?
Some companies routinely shortchange their workers. Do you believe your employer is violating the law and cheating you out of overtime or other rightful pay?
The Keegan Law Firm, LLC, can help. You may be entitled to back pay plus penalties. We help employees in the Atlanta area get compensated under state and federal laws.
Unpaid Overtime And Other Wage And Hour Claims
Workers are protected by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state laws of Georgia. Our employment law attorneys hold employers accountable for wage and hour violations such as:
- Paying less than the minimum wage
- Not paying overtime
- Forcing employees to work “off the clock” for no extra pay
- Misclassifying workers to avoid paying overtime
- Denying rest breaks or meal breaks
- Docking paychecks for illegal reasons
- Forcing tipped employees to share tips with management
Your employer should pay overtime if you work more than 40 total hours in one week. You should be paid the time-and-a-half rate, not straight time, for those overtime hours. The state minimum wage is $5.15 an hour, but most Georgia workers are covered by the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour. Is your company paying the correct wage?
