Wilmington Wage And Hour Attorney
Protecting Workers' Rights Everywhere In North Carolina
As an employee you perform the job duties that are expected of you and obey company policies and procedures. In return, you expect your employer to fulfill its legally required obligations to you, such as honoring employment contract terms, providing breaks and paying you the appropriate amount on time. When this doesn't happen, you have legal rights.
Based in Wilmington, Rhine Law Firm, P.C., represents employees throughout the surrounding North Carolina communities in all wage and hour matters. Let us help you protect your employee rights today.
Enforcing Employee Rights In All North Carolina Wage And Hour Claims
According to North Carolina and federal law, you must be paid for the time that you work. This also included overtime pay, unless you fall into a set of specific exemptions. Unfortunately, employers sometimes unintentionally or intentionally miscalculate compensation for their employers.
For the past several years, our attorneys have successfully tackled a wide range of employment matters, including wage and hour claims. We are determined to help you achieve a fair outcome when you are dealing with:
- Employee misclassification (exempt vs. nonexempt)
- Failure to pay minimum wage
- Denial of overtime pay
- Tip-splitting issues
- Improper deductions
- Withholding wages and commission upon termination
- Denial of meal and rest breaks
- Other wage and hour matters
Our top priority at Rhine Law Firm, P.C., is to ensure your employee rights are protected and you are receiving the wages you are fully entitled to for your work performance. Far too often, employees just go along with their employees' actions and are deprived of their wages and their rights to meal and rest breaks.
When you consult our firm, one of our Wilmington business litigation attorneys will meet with you during a confidential consultation to discuss your wage and hour claim. We recognize that our clients are often very hesitant to seek legal help due to possible employment retaliation. We want you to know that retaliation is illegal, as well as not paying you for the work that you have done. We can help you understand your rights and assist you in taking the proper legal action to safeguard your best interests.
