Compensation for Overtime Hours

How a Chicago Employment Lawyer Can Help You

Many employees regularly work more than 40 hours in a week. Under state and federal law, some of these employees are entitled to additional pay for the extra time worked. If you are working overtime and are wondering whether you are entitled to additional compensation, seek guidance from a Chicago employment law attorney.

An attorney at the Law Offices of Fern Trevino can inform you about the laws pertaining to overtime and other wage and hour matters and advise you of your options. The firm has handled select employment law matters for Chicago-area employees for almost 25 years, and offers client counseling and legal representation. If you believe that your employer owes you overtime pay, believe that your employer has misclassified you as a salaried or exempt employee to avoid paying you overtime, or are experiencing any other violation of your rights, contact the Law Offices of Fern Trevino to schedule a confidential consultation.

Are you owed overtime pay? Call an attorney today.

The United States Department of Labor regulates minimum wages, maximum hours, and overtime pay for employees and employers. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) provides that, unless employees are exempt, employers must pay them overtime for any hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a week, at a rate of no less than time and one-half times their regular rate.

Find out if your employer is violating your right to overtime pay and how you can seek the compensation you deserve. Contact a Chicago employment lawyer.
