We all know that trying to live and support a family while working at or near the minimum wage is extremely challenging.
Unfortunately, some employers take advantage of their employees and fail to pay at least minimum wage for all hours worked and fail to pay overtime for all hours worked beyond 40 per week. Even more common, bad employers frequently misclassify their employees as “independent contractors” in an attempt to avoid paying overtime to those employees at all.
Candidly, employers who take advantage of and bully their employees infuriate us, and we love turning the tables on employers who cheat employees out of an honest day’s pay.
If your employer failed to pay you what you’re owed, give us a call at 816-348-3003, or send us a message and we will contact you right away. Initial consultations are always free.
