The overtime wage lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm help construction workers and laborers obtain overtime pay owed for their work. Construction workers and similar laborers are one of the most vital aspects of the success of our economy. These individuals often put in long hours, with some projects working around the clock, to build the structures which benefit society.
Sometimes employers exploit construction workers and laborers in this industry by miscalculating overtime hours or misclassifying employees as independent contractors. Further, if workers are required to work before or after clocking out, they are entitled to get paid for the time spent working. Sometimes employers try to justify asking the employee to work before or work after clocking out by saying the job should have already been completed. However, this is not permitted. You are entitled to be compensated for all of the time you spend working.
The overtime wage claim lawyers are experienced in helping construction workers and laborers in overtime pay claims. The attorneys at the Amaro Law firm will happy to review any potential claim with you and inform you of your rights in regards to being paid for your hard work. Your employer may not retaliate against you for seeking the payment for overtime wages you are owed – by law.
