Our overtime pay attorneys have discovered that some employers use “worker misclassification” to avoid paying their employees the overtime pay or wages they deserve. For example, companies can misclassify their employees as independent contractors to avoid paying them overtime. Whether this is intentional or unintentional, your employer owes you overtime if the law says that you are an employee. The court will look at the specific characteristics of your situation in order to determine of you are an employee or an independent contractor. Further, employers may try to claim that your job falls under certain exemptions, preventing you from receiving overtime pay. The worker misclassification overtime attorneys at the Amaro Law Firm can help you determine whether your employer is wrongfully claiming an exemption preventing you from getting overtime pay.
