At Outten & Golden LLP, we understand the unique employment situations associated with the technology industry. Our skilled employment attorneys have extensive experience representing Information Technology (IT) and Computer Network professionals facing workplace challenges, wage and hour disputes, or contract disputes.

Special Employment Situations in IT and Computer Networking

IT and Computer Network (link to copy below) professionals often find themselves in complex employment scenarios due to the nature of their work. These can range from overtime compensation issues, contractual disputes, to misclassification of employment status.

Overtime Compensation Issues: Many IT professionals often work more than 40 hours per week. Some employers, however, may misclassify these professionals as exempt from overtime pay under the Computer Professional Exemption, leading to potential wage and hour violations.

Contractual Disputes: IT and Computer Network professionals frequently operate under employment contracts that may include non-compete, non-disclosure, or intellectual property clauses. These contracts can become sources of dispute, especially when it comes to contract termination or violation of any of these clauses.

Misclassification of Employment Status: Some employers may attempt to classify IT and Computer Network professionals as independent contractors rather than employees, potentially depriving them of certain benefits and protections.
