As an employee, you expect certain things from your employer. Most of all, you expect that you will be paid appropriately for the time you work.

At Bohbot & Riles, we believe you deserve to receive fair compensation for your hard work. We protect the rights of employees who receive inappropriate compensation for the number of actual hours worked, including overtime. With over 40 years of collective experience, our skilled employment law attorneys can review your case.

Employee Misclassification

As wage and hour attorneys, we understand the frequency of issues with employee misclassification. If your employer misclassified you as an independent contractor, you could lose out on the full benefits and salary of the position. We can advocate for your rights as an employee, and recover the benefits and salary you are due.

Exempt Versus Nonexempt Employees

Employers must pay nonexempt employees for overtime hours — more than 8 hours a day or 40 hours per week. Nonexempt employees typically include those who are paid an hourly wage. However, it is important to note that some exempt (salaried) employees may also be eligible for overtime.

We Protect Your Rights Under 'Whistleblower' Laws

As an employee, you may have fears about stepping forward to complain about unpaid wages. Federal and state whistleblower laws protect employees, and independent workers from experiencing retaliation. You can step forward, knowing that the law and our lawyers are on your side.
