Employee Rights

Our Lawyers are Helping Employees Protect Their Legal Rights

As an employee, you have legal rights. Do you know what those rights are? Is there a limit to how many hours you can work? What is workplace discrimination or retaliation? Do you qualify for overtime? What can you do when your employer refuses to pay you at least minimum wage?

To best understand your legal rights when facing an employment-related problem, you should contact our attorneys without delay. The employee rights lawyers at Alonso Krangle LLP are committed to helping workers when employers take advantage of them. If you are facing discrimination or not receiving wages to which you are entitled, call Alonso Krangle, LLP, for help.

Alonso Krangle, LLP is Helping Workers Collect Unpaid Overtime

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is the federal law that governs eligibility and calculations of overtime pay. Overtime pay is one and a half times your regular rate of pay.

When eligible employees work more than 40 hours in a workweek, they should receive overtime pay for the extra hours.

However, not everyone is eligible for overtime pay, and employers often go to great lengths to avoid paying overtime to their workers. Have you been told you do not qualify for overtime pay? Have you been asked to “work off the clock?” Were you forced to take “comp time” instead of overtime pay?

These are just a few of the ways employers try to avoid paying workers what they legally deserve. At Alonso Krangle, LLP, we help workers collect the overtime pay the laws entitle them to.

The laws about overtime pay and employment, in general, can be complicated. If you are an employee who is not receiving overtime pay, call Alonso Krangle, LLP, and get help from our experienced employee rights lawyers.

Our Lawyers are Helping Workers Collect Unpaid Wages

Laws require employers to pay workers for all of the time they spend performing work. Believe it or not, there are times when employers don’t pay their workers at all.

Other times, they refuse to pay for all of the time employees actually perform work. Has your boss asked you to take work home with you? Have you worked through your lunch break? Did you come in early to get things done? Did you get paid for these times? If not, your employer may owe unpaid wages.

Are You Earning At Least Minimum Wage?

Employers also pay wages, but they are less than the minimum amount required by law. Minimum wages can vary by job, state, and even county. Minimum wage can be difficult to calculate. More often, employers try to take advantage of someone’s need to keep a job and pay less than minimum wage, assuming they can get away with it. In other cases, they do not pay for certain hours, pulling your average wage below minimum wage.

Don’t let your employer take advantage of you.

If you are entitled to unpaid wages, enforce your right to collect the money you have worked hard to earn. Call our unpaid wage lawyers today for help obtaining the wages your employer owes you.

We Help Employees When They Face Employment Discrimination and Harassment

Federal, state, and local laws exist to protect employees from workplace discrimination, including harassment. The laws are complicated, voluminous, and continually evolving.

Workplace discrimination can occur at any point during the employment process, from application through termination. For discrimination to be unlawful, it must be based on a protected category. Some categories can include race, religion, sex, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, and disability.

Sexual harassment and racial discrimination are some of the most common types of reported employment discrimination. Have you been sexually harassed by co-workers? Has your boss threatened to fire you if you don’t go out with him or her? Did your employer refuse to promote you because of your race or ethnicity?

Contact our employee rights lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP, if you think you have faced workplace discrimination and harassment. You might be entitled to obtain compensation and other remedies.

Alonso Krangle, LLP Helps Whistleblowers Under the False Claims Act

The False Claims Act is a federal law that allows individuals to file claims against companies (or other individuals) that are defrauding the government. If successful, the person who brings the claim can collect a significant portion of the money recovered on behalf of the government.

These claims, called “qui tam” lawsuits, are often brought by employees of the companies acting fraudulently. This places the people bringing the claims in a difficult situation. Can they be fired? Threatened?

If you are considering bringing a qui-tam or whistleblower claim, it is imperative that you have representation from lawyers who understand your legal rights and will fight to protect you.

Alonso Krangle, LLP, has the experience and knowledge to ensure that you receive fair treatment and the compensation to which you are entitled by law.
