Springfield Unpaid Compensation Attorney

Illinois Wage and Hour Lawyer

Workers in numerous occupations are protected by federal and state laws that ensure they are compensated fairly for their time. If you believe that your employer is in violation of these laws, you may be able to take legal action to recover unpaid wages.

At the law office of James A. Devine, Attorney at Law, I represent individuals in actions against employers involving wage and hour claims, unpaid overtime and other wage violations. To make an appointment with a Springfield unpaid compensation lawyer, please call 217-280-4094. Your initial consultation is free.

State and Federal Wage Violations

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law governing wage and hour regulations. The FLSA requires that nonexempt employees must be paid one and one-half times their regular pay rate for all hours worked in excess of 40 per week. Some employers try to avoid paying overtime by misclassifying or reclassifying employees as salaried (exempt) when they should be paid hourly (nonexempt).

I can assist you with overtime violations and additional unpaid compensation issues such as:

  • Off-the-clock work
  • Standby or on-call work
  • Unemployment compensation

Illinois law also provides protection for workers.

For a free initial consultation, please call 217-280-4094 or contact me online today.
