For more than 30 years, our Chicago wage and overtime dispute lawyer has acted as a strong legal advocate on behalf of the hardworking people in our area. We protect your rights and take the legal actions needed to get you the wages and overtime you are entitled to. 

Common Disputes Over Wages and Overtime in Chicago

Federal laws protect the rights of workers against wage and overtime disputes with employers. While each state can set its own minimum wage, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) has minimum standards in regards to hourly pay and overtime benefits. When employers violate these laws and greedily attempt to save themselves money by not paying you what you are owed, The Law Office of Mitchell A. Kline can step in. 

As an experienced Chicago wage and overtime dispute lawyer, we protect your rights and help you get the money that you are not only owed but to which you are entitled. Common types of disputes in cases we represent include: 

  • Failure to adhere to the state minimum wage;
  • Failure to pay overtime;
  • Misclassification of employees, which can impact wages and eligibility for overtime;
  • Withholding tips and commissions;
  • Not providing holiday pay, vacation time, or other wages to which you are entitled;
  • Withholding wages and overtime pay in retaliation for reporting problems or filing a complaint against the company. 

We Protect Your Rights in Filing a Claim

In Illinois, the Wage Payment and Collection Act establishes when, where and how often wages must be paid. When disputes arise, you have the right to file a complaint against the employer and to take legal action to get the money you are owed. 

At The Law Office of Mitchell A. Kline, you can count on us to provide the trusted legal guidance and professional representation you need in this situation. Our Chicago wage and overtime dispute lawyer protects your rights in filing a claim and helps you get the compensation to which you are entitled. This may include: 

  • Back wages and those wrongfully withheld;
  • Overtime wages your employer previously failed to pay;
  • Accrued vacation pay, bonuses, commissions, and other fringe benefits;
  • Additional compensation, which your employer pays as penalties, which can double the total amount you are entitled to receive.
