Wage & Overtime

Outten & Golden attorneys fight to ensure that workers are paid all the compensation they have earned. We represent workers whose employers have violated federal and/or local laws governing minimum wage, overtime, misclassification, exemptions, tips, commissions, prevailing wages, and other kinds of compensation. We often represent groups of workers who have suffered the same kind of wage theft by the same employer in class or collective actions.
