Our Representation in Wage Theft Claims
Attorney Cobbina will handle all matters related to a wage and hour abuse claim, from the initial filing of a complaint through discovery and trial, if necessary. We handle all types of wage theft claims, including cases involving:
- Hourly employees who have incorrectly been categorized as salaried workers
- Employees who have not been paid time and a half as mandated by law
- Workers who have been paid less than required minimum wage
- Employees who have been forced to continue working after they’ve clocked out
- Employees who have not been given periodic breaks, as set forth in labor laws
Wage theft can happen in a number of different ways. If you are paid a day rate, regardless of the number of hours you work, you may have a claim. If you are required to spend unpaid time preparing for your shift, you may have a claim. If you are a waitress or other restaurant employee getting less than minimum wage, but no tip credit, you may have a claim.
