Unpaid Wage Disputes

Oftentimes employees are afraid to bring up even the slightest wage and hour dispute for fear they will be fired. You deserve payment for what you earned under the law. Even work that was done "off the clock" requires payment. Unpaid wages in employment and labor law typically have to do with allegations of one or more of the following:

  • Failure to pay overtime
  • Unpaid tips and commissions
  • Unpaid bonuses
  • Unpaid accrued vacation
  • Misclassification of exempt/nonexempt employees
  • Paying less then minimum wage
  • Under-reporting of hours actually worked

Mr. Lambros has extensive experience in seeking justice on behalf of employees in unpaid wage disputes whether by settlement negotiations, mediation and arbitration, litigation or appeals. If litigation is the ultimate course, he also has the experience, the knowledge and the compassion to pursue the best possible outcome for your case.

Construction and Food Service Workers

Common industries where employers tend to be the biggest offenders of unpaid wages are the construction and restaurant industries. Food service employers fail to pay tips to their workers. Construction workers working around the clock are not properly paid, or are given an hourly rate less than promised. Regardless of the "culture" of the workplace that may have evolved, it is illegal and you deserve to be paid.
