Fear of Being Fired
I know I’m owed money, but will I get fired if I do anything about it?
That’s a fair question that we often hear. Fortunately, the law makes it illegal for any employer to retaliate against an employee who demands their fair pay under the law. Companies are subject to both criminal and civil penalties for taking any action against an employee. Judges enforcing these laws come down hard on employers who retaliate against employees. You are armed with this hammer because the wage and overtime laws recognize there is an imbalance of power between employers and employees – that’s why the law encourages you to speak up without fear of reprisal. If you are concerned about retaliation, your fears should be put to rest after reviewing the information on this site. We have represented hundreds of employees in wage disputes against their employers without any action taken against them.
Thinking about filing a complaint through the Department of Labor? Think Again.
Think twice before heading to the Department of Labor (DOL) for help. If your employer is violating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and depriving you of the wages to which you are lawfully eligible, the Department of Labor has no motive to get you proper compensation. We currently represent employees who filed with the DOL, but received an offer that was unacceptable.

We don’t agree with corporate titans who treat their employees like expendable commodities. We fight for the underdog, for the employee, for YOU – the worker who has been wrongfully cheated out of your wages.
