Performing work and getting compensated is a fundamental part of our economy and our lives in the United States. To protect the rights of employees, federal and state laws regulate wage and hour standards in the U.S. and in Illinois. When these laws are violated, employees can be deprived of payment they deserve for the time they spent working for their employer. Employees then have the right to seek their unpaid wages by filing a legal claim against their employer.
Wage claims can be stressful and costly for employers, as well. Whether a claim is wrongful, the result of an error, or arose from other circumstances, your company has the right to defend against any unfounded liability.
At the law firm of Lopez & Sanchez, our wage and hour attorneys have experience representing parties on both sides of this type of claim. To discuss more about how we can assist you, please call our office today.
