The law requires employers to pay the employee the proper wage for the work performed.

A wage claim lawsuit requires an employee to prove that they are entitled to wages they were not paid, such as overtime pay, minimum wage, bonuses, holiday pay, and unpaid wages. The employee must also be able to prove that their employer is liable for the wages they were not paid. The employer may be liable for damages, penalties and/or attorneys fees. 

If you are facing a wage claim case, it is crucial to have a skilled and experienced attorney by your side to protect your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve. Here are some key factors to look for when seeking an attorney to handle your wage claim case:

  1. Expertise in Wage and Hour Laws: Look for an attorney who has extensive experience in handling wage and hour cases. They should be well-versed in state and federal laws governing wages, overtime, and other related issues.
  2. Strong Negotiation Skills: A good wage claim attorney should be able to negotiate with your employer or their representatives to reach a favorable settlement. This will save you time, money, and stress of going through a trial.
  3. Trial Experience: If a settlement cannot be reached, your attorney should be experienced and prepared to take your case to trial. They should be able to present your case in court effectively and persuasively.
  4. Communication and Availability: Your attorney should be accessible and responsive to your needs throughout the entire legal process. You should be able to communicate with them easily and feel confident that they are working tirelessly on your case.
  5. Client-Centered Approach: A good wage claim attorney will prioritize your needs and objectives throughout the case. They should be willing to explain the legal process, answer your questions, and keep you informed about any developments.

In summary, hiring an attorney to handle your wage claim case is an important decision that can have a significant impact on your future.
