Employer is violating the fair labor standards act, state law and common law contractIf you sue in court you may end up with a judgment. The judgment generally allows you to levy on bank accounts, lien real estate and work with the sheriff office civil enforcement division. Many lawsuits result in settlement - which expect the judge to encourage.You stand to recover not only your actual losses (compensatory damages) but also interest, costs and legal fees. on occasion special damages (punitive damages) are also available.Often employment counsel can leverage the above and negotiate quick settlement.martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.Employer should reimburse the legal fees!Good luck!!Kindly rate me five stars.Leaving a bonus after rating is very much appreciated.
