Unpaid Overtime Lawsuit - Unpaid Wages Lawsuit
How an Overtime Lawsuit Can Be Used to Collect Unpaid Wages
Workers who believe they were underpaid, denied wages, or denied overtime pay by an employer may have legal grounds to file a wage and hour lawsuit or join a wage and hour class action. This page provides a background for the claims made by wage and hour lawsuits and who is eligible to file.
Wage and hour claims frequently become class action lawsuits because, in many cases, a company has denied wages to a large number of its workers. Depending on the assumption that most workers don’t know their full rights and will be too intimidated to file a claim, many large companies employ illegal strategies to boost their profits and deny workers their rightful pay. Class action lawsuits allow large groups of workers to hold companies accountable for illegal practices and underpaid wages.
Wage and Hour and Overtime Lawsuits
If you suspect you have been denied wages or underpaid by an employer, you may have legal grounds to file a wage and hour lawsuit or join a class action. Filing an unpaid overtime lawsuit serves two purposes:
First, a wage and hour lawsuit can achieve financial compensation for your family for back wages and other potential damages caused when your employer violated labor laws. Incrementally losing income over a long period of time can take a toll on a family that may be surprising in retrospect.
Second, by filing wage and hour class action lawsuits, workers can hold companies accountable to state and federal laws. What may seem like relatively small claims for each individual worker can result in significant profits for a large company. Employers should not be permitted to underpay their workers.
