Our Experienced Wage & Overtime Lawyers Pursue Claims for Workers

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) has protected workers since 1937. Under its two central provisions — the minimum wage requirement and the overtime provision — employers are obligated to pay you the wages required by the FLSA. If you are classified as non-exempt, pay for your overtime. The Miami employment compensation attorneys at Sugarman Susskind Braswell & Herrera are well qualified to determine if you have a wage, hour, or overtime law case against your employer.

Wage disputes can range from simple misclassification errors to complex and time-consuming cases where employers have deliberately violated the law. We can clearly and precisely explain your employment rights under state law and the FLSA. Our attorneys have recovered earnings and other damages related to the following:

  • Misclassification of workers as exempt from wage and hour laws
  • Unpaid overtime and sick days
  • Violation of minimum wage laws
  • Unpaid lunch and rest periods in violation of the law
  • Independent contractor rights
  • Late pay
  • Unpaid reimbursement for work-related expenses
  • Improper deductions

Our firm strives to get workers the fair treatment they are entitled to by law.

Empowering Workers in Wage and Overtime Disputes

Even when workers think they have been underpaid or have not been paid the wages required by the FLSA, the thought of facing an employer is tinged with apprehension. Our attorneys are intimately familiar with state and federal wage and overtime law standards and will zealously work to protect your rights. 

Furthermore, under the FLSA, it is unlawful for an employer to fire or discriminate against a worker who has filed a complaint or participated in an FLSA legal proceeding.
