You probably know that each state sets its own minimum hourly wage, but there are also federal and state laws governing overtime pay, mandatory breaks, and other wage and hour issues. If you believe that your rights have been violated and that you aren't being paid fairly for the hours you've worked, you need the help of an experienced wage and hour attorney to help you collect what you're owed.
GetLegal's Attorney Directory can put you in touch with an attorney in your area who can offer the help you need.
How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located near you?
