Wage and Hour Claims

Mississippi Lawyers for Wage and Hour Claims

Have you been denied overtime or told by your employer that you are not entitled to overtime because you are an "exempt employee?" At our law firm, Watson & Norris, PLLC, in Jackson, Mississippi, our experienced wage and hour attorneys fight for the rights of employees who are denied overtime and other pay to which they are rightfully entitled.

 

Skilled • Professional • Compassionate

 

We fight for the rights and best interests of our clients.

Workers who are covered by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FSLA) are entitled to a minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. Overtime pay at a rate not less than one-and-one-half times regular pay is required for work that exceeds 40 hours in a workweek. Some businesses and some job classifications are exempt from these wage and hour standards. However, misclassification of employees — whether deliberate or accidental — is not unusual. The bottom line in either case means the misclassified worker is shortchanged.  Most employees who are salaried think they are not owed overtime. But many salaried employees are entitled to mandatory overtime, including some computer professionals, managers, stockbrokers, bank loan officers and retail workers. Even people who work for a piece rate may be entitled to overtime under state or federal wage and hour laws.

 

If you work for a large company where the misclassification of employees regarding overtime laws is widespread, our wage and hour lawyers may consider bringing a class action law suit. Recovery in either an individual or a class action law suit may include back wages for up to three years, liquidated damages equal to the amount of back wages owed, attorneys' fees and court costs.
