If you believe your employer owes you money, we can assist you in finding out. Did you know that you may qualify for overtime pay regardless of being part-time, hourly or salaried? Also, if your employer requires that any task be done in order to start your work, such as getting dressed in proper attire or warming up a piece of equipment, you are entitled to pay for that as well.
