Wage and Hour issues are becoming a hot topic in employment and labor law. Local, state, or federal law protect your right to wages by mandating employers must pay a minimum wage, overtime wage, and in some cases the prevailing wage. However, there are certain classes of employees that are not subject to these laws, and employers are increasingly attempting to avoid payment of minimum wage, overtime wage, and the proper prevailing wage by misclassifying their employees. Do you believe you have been misclassified?

Additionally, you may have other protections in place concerning your right to wages including mandatory break and lunch periods and strict time limits in which your employer must pay you earned wages.

Your employer also cannot discriminate against you in the payment of wages based on your gender, race, color, religion, age, national origin, or ancestry.
