HOW AN EMPLOYMENT LAWYER ASSESSES A WAGE AND HOUR CASE
Time is money
Are you having disputes with your employer over your wage and hour? You may not be the only one.
An experience employment lawyer needs to assess the facts and issues to determine the employer’s liability.
An employment lawyer needs to be able to calculate the unpaid wages you are due. This includes regular time and overtime hours you worked, but for which you were not fully paid.
For instance, if you worked overtime hours but were paid only regular time wages, you are entitled to the overtime premium (talk to an employment lawyer about this). And, you may be entitled to pay for meal and rest breaks that your employer did not let you take. In order to calculate these losses, a lawyer will need certain things from you.
You can make the lawyer’s job of evaluating your case much easier as part of your initial consultation by gathering relevant documents and organizing information for the lawyer. The documents you may need are:
– pay stubs
– records of hours worked (including overtime hours)
– records of vacation time, and
– employer policies on overtime, wages, and breaks.
