You work hard to ensure you receive your hard-earned salary or hourly wages. Many individuals in Oregon work more than 40 hours per week in order to make a better life for themselves and their families. The last thing you need is to fight with your employer over overtime compensation. As an employee, you are entitled to receive the wages you are owed and at the time they are owed, including any overtime you have earned. Wage claims pursue compensation for all “wages” an employer has failed to pay, including but not limited to regular hourly wages and overtime pay.

If your employer does not comply with this requirement, for example, if they issue you a paycheck for less than you’re owed, omit overtime wages, or pay you later than they should, you can file a claim under Oregon wage and hour laws. These laws entitle you not only to the back wages you are owed but also to a penalty fee.

The federal government also provides for wage protections under the Fair Labor Standards Act. The FLSA requires that every employee receive at least a federally mandated minimum wage, as well as overtime pay for any hours you work over 40 hours per week. There are also provisions obtaining liquidated damages equal to the amount of wages owed. Our firm has helped hundreds of individuals in Oregon to get the money they deserve for their work performed. Whether under Oregon wage and hour laws or under the FLSA, our attorneys at BAKER LAW PC will make sure that your employer is compensating you as you deserve.
