Do I Need a Lawyer for A Wage Claim?
For a wage claim, you are allowed, but not required, to have an employment attorney represent you at any stage of the wage claim process. The process is designed to be accessible to workers, so in many cases, it may be worthwhile to represent yourself.
This is especially true if your claim is small or very straightforward—for example, if you are claiming only a few weeks’ worth of overtime pay or your only claim is for clearly unauthorized deductions.
However, if you have a large or complicated claim — for example, you are claiming minimum wage or overtime violations over the span of many months — you should consider hiring a lawyer.
