Waldorf, Maryland Employment Unpaid Overtime & Wages Law Firm
Wage and Hour Laws
Unpaid Wages, Unpaid Overtime, and Unpaid Commissions
You have the right to receive wages, overtime pay, commissions, and any other form of compensation that are owed to you. These are commonly known as "wage and hour rights." The laws of the state of Maryland recognize and fortify these wage and hour rights. Nathaniel David Johnson, Employment Law Litigator, can help you pursue your wage and hour claim. I have almost 15 years of experience as an employment law litigator. I have helped many people to recover unpaid wages. Let me help you.
Maryland's Wage and Hour Law states that you have the right to receive your minimum wage pay. It also requires your employer (with some exceptions) to pay you time-and-a-half for work in excess of 40 hours per week.
Depending on your employment situation, you may have the right to recover:
- Accrued leave, including vacation and compensatory leave
- All pay accrued as of the date you are fired or quit
- Ownership interests
- Time-and-a-half for work in excess of 40 hours per week (in most cases)
Basically, you are entitled under the law to recover any form of compensation that you and your employer have agreed to, so long as you have lived up to your part of the bargain.
The Maryland Wage Payment and Collection Law has put teeth into employee rights. In addition to unpaid compensation, if you prevail, you may recover your attorneys' fees plus triple damages.
If you did your work, and your employer hasn't paid you, it's time to let an aggressive attorney come to your aid. I know how to deal with stubborn employers.
