Fair Wages Matter
Theoretically, the American economy is an engine powered by companies who value their employees’ contributions and pay them fairly. In practice, that is not always the case.
At Chehardy, Sherman, Williams, Recile and Hayes, partner George Recile and his team are dedicated to fighting for employees who haven’t been paid the fair compensation that they deserve for the work that they have done. Recile and his team aggressively pursue these cases to get clients the money they earned, handling wage and hour labor and employment issues at all stages of litigation.
Recile helps workers who were wrongly denied overtime, paid less than minimum wage, denied tips, were forced to work off-the-clock, or otherwise underpaid. Beyond suing for unpaid wages there are often additional damages that come into play.
Whether you are an hourly or a salaried worker, if you were denied overtime pay or were not properly paid for your work under the Fair Wages Standards Act, our Fair Wages group may be able to file a lawsuit against your employer to collect compensation for unpaid wages and additional damages.
In some cases, the employer classifies a worker as a manager or administrative employee, when in fact he or she doesn’t perform those duties. State and Federal Wage and Hour laws, such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, may impact the rights of employees and obligations of employers with respect to overtime pay. Whether this classification is mistakenly or deliberately made, the result is an underpaid worker who is not treated fairly.
In some cases, the wrong is done to a whole class of workers, and Recile’s Fair Wages group litigates class action suits to right the injustice done to many hard-working folks and their families. “The law is on your side,” says Recile. “If an employer is not paying fair wages, we will use every legal avenue to get you the compensation you deserve.”
