Overtime Violation Honest & Experienced Employment Attorney

Charleston Overtime Violation Attorney

Reclaim Unpaid Wages & Overtime Pay

Every employee deserves the right to payment for work that they completed. If you have not been paid by your employer, you need to contact an attorney immediately. Time is ticking. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employees only have two years to report unpaid wages, or three years if a willful violation of the FLSA occurred.

At Hoosier Law Firm, PLLC, we want to alleviate your stress while earning your trust and confidence. Handling cases for clients in a wide-range of professions, including miners working across West Virginia, we use our experience to explore all of your options when it comes to recovering the backpay you are owed. We are not afraid of going up against big companies and handle cases both large and small.

Call us at (800) 455-8721 today or contact us online to talk with our Charleston employment lawyer about wage restitution.

Don’t Be Afraid of Your Employer

Companies can be imposing and intimidating. If you are suffering the burden of unpaid wages, you need to stand up to your boss. You may be worried about the consequences you will face if you hire an attorney. Thankfully, federal and state laws prohibit retaliation to protect employees from discrimination and unjust treatment after they have complained about their company or reported illegal activity.

Recently, there have been a wave of significant victories for miners across West Virginia seeking backpay and damages for wage and hour and overtime violations. As recently at February 2019, The U.S. Department of Labor ordered a coal mine operator to pay $1.4 million to miners and employees for not paying workers what they were owed for the time they worked. Attorney Adrian Hoosier comes from a family of miners and understands how hard this work is. He fights for miners to get the fair compensation they are owed.

Laws Regarding Overtime Pay

In most cases, West Virginian employees are entitled to “time and a half” pay for any hours that exceed their 40-hour work week. This means that you should receive 1.5 times your hourly wage for every hour that you work outside of your normal 40 hours. However, not all employees are entitled to overtime.

Some of those who do not receive overtime can include:

  • Executives
  • Certain salaried administrative positions
  • Certain professionals that require advanced knowledge, such as artists, computer professionals, and certified teachers
  • Outside sales professionals who are salaried or commission-based

In each of the above, certain qualifications apply and overtime laws are very detailed. Let our knowledgeable Charleston employment lawyer look into your case to see if you are being paid fairly. We are focused on taking action and being vested in the legal process, an attitude that produces results. Check out our reviews to see how Hoosier Law Firm, PLLC has helped others in the past.
