It can be understandably intimidating to want to file a claim against your employer. Taking legal action against a large healthcare institution can be even more challenging. Start by teaming up with our healthcare worker unpaid wage attorneys.
We would be glad to show you the many benefits of starting an unpaid wage claim as a healthcare worker, such as:
- Fair compensation: The main purpose of an unpaid wage claim is to get you the wages that you earned but were never provided. A successful claim could restore your lost wages and secure additional compensation for damages caused by the short.
- Employer penalties: The healthcare employer that shorted your wages could be penalized by the court and/or through government action. Such penalties are meant to discourage an employer from conducting the same violations in the future. Furthermore, employer penalties could include paying punitive damages to affected employees and workers.
- Protection for coworkers: Your unpaid wage claim could be the first step in making sure that your coworkers are also paid a fair wage. By standing up for yourself, you could ultimately be standing up for healthcare workers across the nation.
