Wage and Hour Disputes
The Perron Law Firm has represented a variety of clients who were required to work more than 40 hours per week but did not receive the time-and-a-half premium wage required by the law. These cases have been brought on behalf of one person working for a small employer as well as a group or class of workers employed by multi-national corporations. Sometimes employers may try to avoid the overtime rules by converting a production worker's hourly wage into a "salary" and giving the worker a meaningless title., Workers do not become "executives" just because they get a new title and a salaried employee is not exempt from overtime requirements. In a recent case The Perron Law Firm not only secured awards for back overtime pay for current and past employees of a large manufacturer, the employer actually changed its policies and started paying time-and-a-half for overtime work.
