BERGMAN & JACOBS - Attorneys at Law

Overtime & 

Wage Disputes

Bergman & Jacobs is very experienced in the area of labor and employment law.  Our lawyers have represented both the employer or the employee from the negotiation and drafting of employment policies and employment contracts.  We have successfully tried cases which involve wrongful termination of employment due to race, gender, age or national origin discrimination. 

 

We also handle all types of overtime and wage claims.  Federal and state laws protect workers deprived of overtime and owed wages.  If you were denied overtime or wage payments, we are ready to investigate and prosecute your case.  The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) provides a two-year statute of limitations for recovering unpaid overtime wages unless the employer committed a willful violation of labor law.  If you were wrongfully denied overtime, you are entitled to the unpaid overtime wages and double the wages owed.  You will also be entitled to reasonable attorney’s fees.

law and justice he is the worst."
