Wage & Hour


Kansas City Wage and Hour Claim Attorneys Serving Missouri and Kansas

It can be extremely difficult and frustrating to recover wages from an employer if you have not been properly compensated. In some cases, employers make honest mistakes, and in others they may have deliberately paid an employee less than he or she is entitled to under applicable law. In any case, an employer typically will vigorously oppose a claim that they have violated wage and hour laws or failed to pay you for all overtime wages because any violation likely happened to several other employees as well. You need an experienced wage and hour lawyer at Reavey Law LLC to assist you with this employment law claim.

Clients often initially come to us with questions about discrimination or retaliation claims only to discover they may also have a wage and hour claim that they were previously completely unaware of. It is important to consider whether you were properly compensated for your work and seek the advice of an attorney with experience handling these types of cases.

Wage and Hour Law

You are entitled to be fairly compensated for the work you perform. In its simplest form, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) guarantees that employees are paid a minimum wage and overtime pay. However, there are many other protections that the FLSA provides for all employees, including professional, salaried and executive employees. Our attorneys understand the complex nature of the FLSA, and we can help you understand how the law applies to your situation.

We can answer any question an employee might have regarding a variety of wage and hour law issues, including:

  • Minimum wage violations
  • Overtime pay violations
  • Failure to pay for off-the-clock work, breaks or meal time
  • Failure to pay time for donning and doffing (the time it takes for you to put on or remove safety equipment or other employer required material)
  • Executive compensation issues
  • Misclassification of exempt and non-exempt FLSA employees
  • Delayed comp time/Misclassification of independent contractor
Additional information on wage and hour issues can be found at the U.S. Department of Labor Website.
