Atlanta Lawyers Press to Get Workers the Overtime Pay They Deserve
Proven Georgia firm advocates for employees in FLSA wage actions. If you’re on the job more than 40 hours a week but not receiving time-and-a-half pay for your overtime, your employer might owe you compensation. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), private and public employees are entitled to a premium for extra work, unless they fall under a specific statutory exemption. DeLong, Caldwell, Bridgers, Fitzpatrick & Benjamin LLC takes on businesses throughout Georgia that fail to pay proper overtime and minimum wages. Our accomplished attorneys advocate on behalf of workers so they can bring home what they’ve earned.
Specifically, Mitchell Benjamin took excellent care of my affairs with a heart for honesty and integrity. I highly recommend this office, not only for their expertise but for the care in practicing it.
Skillful Wage and Hour Attorneys Assist Underpaid Workers
Employment attorneys pursue payment when employers violate the law. Companies sometimes try to evade their legal responsibility by claiming that workers are actually managers, administrators, or independent contractors, for whom an overtime premium is not mandated. Other employers use illegal comp time plans, require off-the-clock work, violate the rules regarding tip pools, or claim that overtime isn’t required if an employee is paid a salary. We focus on these types of cases and know how to defeat dishonest tactics used by employers. Firm members Michael Caldwell, Charles Bridgers, Kevin Fitzpatrick, Jr. and Mitchell Benjamin have earned AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Ratings by Martindale-Hubbell®, a recognition of their legal ability and ethics by attorneys familiar with their work.
I found each person at the practice to be very courteous and respectful during each encounter. Mitchell Benjamin was very thorough and knowledgeable and worked quickly to find an appropriate resolution and provide closure.
