There are various laws which protect workers from unscrupulous employers. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) dictates the federal minimum wage as well as rules regarding overtime. Arizona, like most other states, has its own laws regarding workers' wages and other related issues.
Workers Are Not Always Aware Of What Their Rights Are. This Can Lead To Employers Taking Advantage Of Their Employees In A Variety Of Ways, Including:
Failing to pay the Minimum Wage
Failing to pay the Overtime
Failing to properly calculate overtime
Requiring the employee to perform work tasks during meal or rest breaks
Misclassifying employees as exempt from overtime rules
Helping Workers Secure A Fair Wage
At Preston & Brar LLC, we deliver highly effective representation to workers who are facing wage and hour issues. During more than 25 years of combined experience, we have honed our skills as wage and hour attorneys. Our attorneys help workers secure the full pay they deserve under the law.
Effective Class Action Representation For Underpaid Employees
One of the tools that we utilize is class action lawsuits. In most situations where an employee has not been paid a fair wage, there are other employees that have been similarly taken advantage of. We can locate those employees and use their stories to help us build a strong case that shows an employer's pattern of violating its employees' rights.
