Failure to Pay Wages, Overtime, Commissions

Schneider Wallace Cottrell Konecky represents individuals who are not paid the wages they are due. Because it rarely makes economic sense for a single worker to pursue a wage and hour lawsuit – i.e. the potential recovery does not justify the costs and risks of litigation – large employers have traditionally flouted the nation’s wage and hour labor laws with impunity.


However, for the past decade, we have been increasingly successful in prosecuting wage and hour claims as class action lawsuits.  The class action vehicle allows hundreds, thousands or hundreds of thousands of similarly situated employees to sue an offending employer as part of a single overtime lawsuit. The advent of the wage and hour class action lawsuit has empowered workers to challenge illegal wage payment practices of their employers on an equal playing field. 


The cases we see most often involve:

  1. Misclassification as exempt from overtime
  2. “Off-the-clock” work
  3. Improper OT calculation methods
  4. Failure to pay compensable time (travel; donning/doffing; on-call; training)
  5. Minimum wage violations
  6. Failure to provide meal and rest breaks
  7. Vacation forfeitures
  8. Improper wage deductions / “charge backs”
  9. Failure to reimbursements for expenses / uniforms
  10. Improper classification as independent contractor

Lawsuits can be pursued by workers who have been denied overtime wages in direct violation of the U.S. Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA) and analogous state laws.  The FLSA is a federal law that governs not only pay practices, but also minimum wage and child labor practices.
