Joliet Wage & Hour Attorneys

Both the federal and Illinois state governments recognize the need to set certain standards for employers to pay employees for the work they perform. These laws are intended to protect the rights of employees, however, many employees suspect their rights may have been violated due to noncompliance of wage and hour laws.

Fortunately, the laws allow employees to seek any unpaid wages they deserve by filing a legal claim against their employers. These claims can be challenging though, if successful, they can result in compensation for any losses incurred by wage and hour violations. These claims have the potential to be costly for employers and many claims are unfounded. In such situations, defending against these lawsuits is imperative for business owners.

At the law firm of Lopez & Sanchez, we help both employees and employers navigate the legal process of a wage and hour claim. If you need assistance, call for a free consultation today.

Bringing a Wage and Hour Claim

Realizing that you have not been paid what you deserve under the law can be upsetting and stressful. It is easy to be unsure of where to turn, but please know that our attorneys are here to guide you through the process. First, we will evaluate your situation and determine whether you have a valid claim. Many claims arise from the following unlawful acts by your employer:

  • Not paying a minimum hourly wage, including for tipped employees;
  • Misclassifying you as exempt from overtime pay or otherwise failing to pay you the overtime rate;
  • Denying you paid rest breaks when required under the law;
  • Not counting all hours that you worked in a day;
  • Withholding pay or making wrongful deductions from your check;
  • Not issuing paychecks when required by law.

Our office knows how to resolve any type of wage or hour claim you may have.
