Wage Theft & Unpaid Overtime Attorneys
You May Be a Victim of Unpaid Overtime Wage Theft.
The wage and hour attorneys at Allen & Nolte provide decades of experience fighting for the rights of workers in cases involving wage theft and unpaid overtime. Many companies ignore federal overtime laws to avoid paying workers what they should be paid. People from all walks of life are wrongly misclassified as being exempt from overtime pay every day in violation of state of federal regulations. In some cases, workers do not realize they are owed years of back pay.

Allen & Nolte Knows the Law
If you are a victim of unpaid overtime, the wage and hour attorneys at Allen & Nolte are dedicated to defending your legal rights under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Our lawyers are experienced in cases involving FLSA requirements, including seeking overtime wages based on employers’ failure to pay what is legally owed.
Established in 1938, the FLSA protects employees from being abused by setting employment standards for federal, state and local governments as well as private business owners.
Under the FLSA, every person is entitled to no less than $7.25 per hour worked. Non-exempt employees are owed 1.5 times their hourly pay for every hour worked over 40 hours per week.
Many companies and businesses label employees as being exempt from overtime pay by classifying them as “managers” or “independent contractors.” In some cases, employers avoid paying overtime by changing employees’ hours to make it appear they did not work 40 hours a week.
