We Understand Minimum Wage Violations
Our Ohio wage law attorneys demand justice
Everyone deserves a fair wage for their hard work. Are you getting paid the lawful minimum wage for all of the hours you worked? Does your employer claim that the minimum wage laws don't apply to your job? If so, they are probably breaking the law.
At Nilges Draher LLC, we fight for workers who are not paid minimum wage. If you are not paid at least a minimum wage, contact us. We can help.
If you're not being paid a minimum wage, odds are you're not alone. Your employer is likely underpaying other workers just like you. The few dollars that your employer stole from you, and the few dollars that your employer stole from many other workers like you add up. Most times, it probably means thousands or millions of dollars in the employer's pocket.
Because these types of wage law violations are often company-wide, the law gives workers the right to bring these cases as a class action or a collective action. That means, one person can bring a claim on behalf of a group of workers who were victims of the same violation.
We have filed class actions and collective actions around the country on behalf of workers. We have recovered tens of millions of dollars for these workers.
Case results matter here - and so do you. If you believe you have a minimum wage claim, contact us. We can help.
Understanding the Ohio and Federal minimum wage laws
Ohio’s minimum wage is $10.10 per hour. The federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour.
There are certain limited exceptions to the minimum wage laws. Each exemption requires a fact-intensive review of the employee's actual job duties. That is why you should contact us. We can tell you whether you were properly classified as exempt from the state or federal minimum wage laws.
Don't assume that your company is following the wage and hour laws. If you believe that you have not been paid properly, contact us. We can help.
We can help you fight back
Your employer is presumably more powerful than you, so it is expected that you'd likely face an uphill battle if you go up against your employer alone. Your employer either already has an attorney or will likely hire one. And though it is unlawful to retaliate against a worker who raises concerns about wages paid or hours worked, that does not always prevent some employers from taking adverse action. Having an attorney on your side is critical.
That's why we want to work with you. For us, your case is about more than just money. It's about holding your company accountable for its actions. It's about making sure they don't do the same thing again in the future. It's about fairness and justice.
