Do I Qualify to File an Overtime or Wage and Hour Lawsuit?
Facing unfair working conditions can be an exasperating and stressful experience.
This is especially true if you believe that you have been denied overtime
wages or are not being paid for all the hours you have worked. Workers
who hold minimum wage jobs may be unsure as to what their rights are in
regards to taking legal action. Becoming informed about your rights and
the existing labor laws can empower you to stand up to your employer.
While most workers qualify for overtime wages, individuals in certain
professions or employment sectors are considered exempt from overtime rights.
Workers who are considered exempt from receiving overtime wages include:
- Employees who earn $455 a week and perform a managerial or high-level job
that requires an advanced degree
- Independent contractors
- Small farm workers
- Domestic baby sitters
- Seasonal amusement park employees
- Organized camp employees
- Outside salespeople
- Newspaper deliverers
To best determine if you can file an overtime or wage and hour lawsuit,
speak with our New Jersey overtime law attorneys for more information.
We can carefully assess your matter and determine whether or not you are
exempt from receiving overtime wages. If you are not exempt, we can then
determine if your
overtime rights were violated and proceed accordingly.
