Everyone deserves to go to work and earn a living without fear that their employer will not provide them with their full pay. Unfortunately, that is a scenario that happens in Lancaster and throughout all of Ohio, more common than people think. Regardless of whether employers make an honest mistake, or whether they willfully and intentionally denied an employee their proper pay, it is important to speak to a Lancaster wage and hour lawyer if you have been denied your fair wages. You may be able to file a claim for damages to earn back pay and, in some cases, even more.
There are a number of wage and hour disputes that arise between employers and their employees. A few of the most common that form the basis for legal claims are as follows:
Unfortunately, the above are just a few of the most common wage and hour disputes that arise in the workplace. A Lancaster wage and hour lawyer can help employees claim liquidated damages, their attorney’s fees, and in some cases, even punitive damages.
Like most civil cases, claims involving wage and hour disputes are governed by a statute of limitations, or a time limit. The statute of limitations on the majority of wage and hour claims is two years from the date of the violation. When a violation occurs repeatedly, employees have two years from the date of the last violation. In certain situations, employees may have three years to file their claim under the Fair Labor Standards Act. This statute of limitations applies to cases that involve an employer that acted willfully or intentionally.
If you have a wage and hour dispute with your employer, you can file a claim to recover your lost wages.
