New Jersey has one of the strongest "wage theft" laws in the country. The law is there to make sure that employers in our state pay their employees property and to punish employers who refuse to do so.
Most employees are entitled to be paid at least the minimum wage, and many employees who work more than 40 hours a week are also entitled to be paid overtime. Even tipped employees, like restaurant servers, who sometimes can be paid a smaller "tipped" minimum wage, are entitled to the regular minimum wage when a big chunk of their job duties consists of non-tipped work, such as cleaning around the restaurant.
Our wage and hour attorneys are experienced in representing victims of wage theft in state and federal court. We have successfully represented employees in wage and hour cases large and small, from individual lawsuits to class and collective actions against some of the largest employers in the United States. We are also well-versed in representing employees seeking to be paid a fair wage in arbitration.
