Perhaps you just noticed recently that you weren’t being paid overtime, or not enough. If you’ve been employed for a while, it can add up. Just as a quick example…let’s say you worked overtime 5 hours a week, and you earn $30 an hour…and you’ve been working there for 2 years. Your overtime pay would be $45. You may not care to do all the math, but you will be glad you did.
Using the example above, what you would be owed for overtime: $45 * 260 hours = $11,700! That’s savings towards college or home, or a new car – or paying off debt.
Oh…and one more thing. That number above? Double it. Because, under the Fair Labor Standards Act, if an employer violates overtime laws, damages DOUBLE.
There’s so much stress you have to deal with in a hostile work environment or while you’re unemployed. Then paying a lawyer on top of all that can be too much too soon.
You’ll be relieved to know that our employment attorneys work on something called contingency. This means that we get paid a part of the settlement you receive. So, you aren’t on the hook for anything until we win your case. It’s in our best interest to get you the best deal possible.
Wondering why you’re not getting paid for those overtime hours? Employers have a lot of ways to make sure that you’re not getting paid the overtime you deserve. If you know that you deserve overtime pay based on your contract, and you haven’t received it, give Bear Republic Law a call.
We don’t get paid unless you do. Get a free consultation, contact Bear Republic Law today.
