Wage and Hour Violations Attorneys

Protecting the Rights of Employees Nationwide

Every employee deserves to be fully and properly paid for the work that they do. But sometimes employers violate wage and hour laws, like the Fair Labor Standards Act or state labor codes, and deny employees what they are owed. Wage and hour violations have a clear and undeniable impact on working people and families and reverberating effects on society.

Our firm has stepped up to the plate for workers and filed class and collective actions against some of the nation’s largest companies, including AT&T, Google, Oracle, C&S Wholesale Grocers, and Novartis Pharmaceuticals, among others. Many clients come to us when they uncover company-wide practices that violate labor laws.
