In the workplace, employees are treated unfairly for various reasons and their rights are violated in different ways. In this post, we will look at violations related to overtime. For example, some people are forced to work overtime even though this places a significant amount of strain on them, from marital problems to fatigue and even physical hardships. Moreover, some people are not compensated properly for the hours they work.
Many of these cases revolve around denied overtime pay. In some cases, employers claim that they did not realize workers were eligible for overtime pay, while others deny that someone worked overtime. This is very frustrating for workers who deserve more pay for the excessive hours that they put in and it is unacceptable. If you are in this position, carefully review the details surrounding your case and the laws that are in place to protect you.
Sadly, many people fail to address overtime violations, whether they are afraid of retaliation or they do not even recognize that their rights were violated. Our law office firmly believes in holding employers who mistreat staff members accountable for their actions, especially since these violations place a significant amount of strain on workers in their personal and professional lives.
Sometimes, filing a complaint resolves the matter. In other instances, going to court is necessary. If you are preparing to move forward with a lawsuit, it is crucial to prepare yourself for everything that lies ahead.
