Overtime & Wage/Hour Violations

Under federal law, an employer must pay its nonexempt employees overtime for hours worked in excess of 40 per week. Many employers, however, fail to classify employees correctly, or they find other ways to avoid having to pay overtime.

We can help you get your rightful wages. The Garber Law Firm is dedicated to helping employees obtain the pay and benefits to which they are entitled. We represent clients in individual and class action lawsuits, seeking full and complete compensation in every case we handle.

Contact us to learn more about your rights — and how to assert them. In a free initial consultation, a lawyer at our firm will review your case and explain what we can do for you. With offices in Marietta, we serve throughout Atlanta and northern Georgia.

Wage And Hour Laws

You may be entitled to additional pay and benefits if your employer:

  • Insists that you work off-the-clock
  • Makes you work more than 40 hours per week
  • Makes you work without breaks
  • Does not pay you for the time you spend preparing for work
  • Insists that you turn in false time cards or time sheets

Even if your job title says "manager" or you supervise other employees, you are not necessarily exempt from wage and hour laws. We understand that speaking out can be scary; many fear retaliation from their employers, and worry they may lose their jobs. Yet such actions are also illegal, and we can provide protections to workers at every step.

Aggressive Representation In Wage Dispute Lawsuits

The Garber Law Firm, P.C., will investigate the circumstances of your employment. If we believe that you are entitled to additional compensation, our attorneys will initiate wage and hour litigation.

We will review electronic records, emails, pay stubs and other evidence to show that you and your fellow employees are indeed entitled to compensation. In some cases, you will be able to obtain attorney fees and punitive damages. Our goal will be to obtain full and complete compensation for you.
