Get Fair Pay For the Hours You Work Let Our Attorneys Aggressively Fight Your Wage Claim Case

Wage Claims in Birmingham, Alabama

There are many ways in which an employer may try to avoid paying wages that are owed to an employee. If you have been asked to work "off the clock," or if you have not received proper compensation for overtime hours that you have worked, then you may be able to pursue legal action to obtain these wages through a wage claim.

If you wish to try to obtain these wages by filing a claim, then it is important to know that you cannot be fired or penalized for this action. Some employees may be afraid of losing their jobs if they report on their employers, but such retaliation may be grounds for a wrongful termination lawsuit, so employees should proceed without fear and with the help of a Birmingham employment law attorney.

At Wrady Michel & King, we understand the difficult situation that you face, and you can be sure that we will work to ensure that your rights are being upheld throughout this process. According to the Fair Labor Standards Act, you have rights concerning the compensation that you should receive, and we will work to help defend these rights and pursue the recompense that you deserve.

There are two options that you may have in filing a claim for compensation:

  • Hire an attorney and file a lawsuit in court
  • Notify the Alabama Department of Labor - Wage and Hour Division who may pursue a complaint on your behalf
