Helping workers recover
When you were employed, you should have been paid for the time you worked. Unfortunately, there are some companies that take advantage of workers and try to pay them less. Our firm fights for workers who are still owed money by employers because of wage and hour violations.
Some companies take advantage of workers by:
- Paying less than minimum wage
- Not paying overtime
- Paying tipped employees less money
- Claiming employees are contractors or exempt workers
- Asking employees to perform work that is unpaid
- Forcing employees to work during their breaks
- Failing to pay for travel time
- Asking employees to work off the clock
If your employer owes you money, our Cleveland employment law attorneys can fight for your rights. We build strong cases and take legal action against companies that don’t treat workers fairly.
