Overtime & Wage Disputes

We at Smith, Feddeler & Smith, P.A. believe a worker is worthy of his or her wages. An honest day’s work requires an honest day’s pay. Unfortunately, some employers fail to pay their employees as required by law. An employer who denies employees overtime pay, forces them to work overtime, or forces them to forego meals and breaks may be breaking the law.

There are state and federal laws that protect certain full-time and part-time workers. These laws apply to them both in the private and public sectors. Wage laws include such things as:

  • Minimum wage
  • Overtime pay
  • Exempt and non-exempt status
  • Rest and meal breaks
  • Youth employment
  • Immigrant workers

Wage laws can be very complex. Not every worker is covered by them. That’s why you need a knowledgeable attorney at Smith, Feddeler & Smith, P.A. who can see how they apply to you. Our attorneys have experience representing both hourly employees and salaried professionals.
