Collecting The Wages You Are Due
State and federal wage and hour laws offer a number of protections for New Jersey workers. While certain managerial workers are exempt from these laws, most workers who are paid by the hour and even some who are paid salaries have specific rights, including the right to be paid overtime. These workers are known as nonexempt workers. If your employer does not pay you for the hours you’ve worked, you may have legal options.
At Costello & Mains, LLC, our attorneys offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your position and explain your rights. You should not rely on information you have received from your employer or a coworker. Only an experienced New Jersey employment law attorney can explain how the law applies to you.
Protecting Your Rights
When you are working to support your family and make ends meet, the idea of confronting your employer about unpaid wages can be frightening. While this fear is understandable, the law has an answer. The Conscientious Employee Protection Act and the Pierce doctrine prevent employers from retaliating against you for asserting your rights to unpaid wages. At Costello & Mains, LLC, our attorneys can protect you throughout the process of holding your employer accountable for paying you what you are owed.
You Are Not Alone
Employers often refuse to pay overtime and other wages their employees are due. They may use a variety of tricks and dodges to get out of paying what the law requires.
