Salaried Worker Unpaid Wage Claims 

Unpaid Overtime & Other Wage Claims for Salaried Employees

If you are a salaried employee and have been denied the wages that are rightfully due to you, it is important to understand your legal rights and remedies. Unpaid wage claims can occur in many different situations, including when an employer fails to pay the full amount of salary owed or fails to pay the correct rate of overtime compensation. In most cases, employees are entitled to back wages for any unpaid amount, plus additional damages. In certain circumstances, state and federal laws provide special remedies that may be available to an employee who has suffered from unpaid wages or salary.

Understanding Wage & Hour Laws

Before filing a formal claim with your employer or the court system, it is important to first understand relevant wage and hour laws. These laws are created to protect employees and specify minimum standards of pay that employers must adhere to. It is important to familiarize yourself with applicable state, federal, and local laws governing unpaid wages and salary to ensure your rights under the law have not been violated.

Generally speaking, salaried workers have the right to receive their wages and salary in full, as well as overtime compensation (when applicable). Overtime laws vary from state to state, but in most cases, non-exempt salaried employees are entitled to overtime pay at a rate of one-and-a-half times their normal rate of pay for every hour worked beyond 40 hours in a single workweek. In some states, like California, non-exempt employees are also eligible for overtime when they work more than 8 hours in a single workday. 

It is important that you understand the specific wage and hour laws in your state. If you have questions about your rights or your salaried worker unpaid wages claim, reach out to Josephson Dunlap today.

What Evidence Is Needed to Prove a Salaried Worker Unpaid Overtime Claim? 

Your employer is almost certain to fight back against your claim. Often, employers dispute unpaid wage claims by arguing that the worker was not classified as an employee, or that they were exempt from overtime pay based on state or federal laws. Your employer may have misclassified your employment status in an effort to avoid paying you overtime, or they may have pressured you to work off the clock. 

In any case, you need an experienced and reliable legal team by your side. When you choose Josephson Dunlap, that is exactly what you get. Our firm is driven by a singular goal: to help workers secure the fair wages they are owed. We are laser-focused on this goal, and everything we do is aimed at helping our clients protect their rights and push back against employer misconduct.
