Resolving Minimum Wage, Unpaid Overtime And Prevailing Wage Issues

Federal and state laws set the minimum wage and a standard 40-hour work-week for most hourly employees, requiring the payment of “time and a half” for “overtime” hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a given week. Prevailing wage laws apply to work performed in connection with certain government contracts.


Wage and hour disputes oftentimes arise as a result of employee misclassification (exempt instead of nonexempt status), and failure to pay overtime for work performed before or after scheduled shifts, during lunch, or while “off the clock.” Prevailing wage disputes can arise when a contractor or subcontractor on a government project fails to or is accused of failing to compensate employees at the appropriate wage rate required for the project.
