Bluefield Overtime Pay Lawyer — Representation in Late Payment and Overtime Disputes
In the state of West Virginia, employers must pay their employees every other week. If an employer fails to do so, the person is entitled to those wages plus three times that amount. The employer is also responsible for any attorney fees that the employee incurs. The employer must pay interest on any damages, as well.
If an employee quits or is fired, he or she must receive wages for hours worked within 72 hours of leaving the company.
Often an employer will try to skirt these and other requirements, either to buy time on making the payment or to avoid paying overtime. The company may disguise this by offering comp time and other trade-offs in lieu of paying what they owe on-time. In cases of overtime, the employee is owed time and a half for any hours worked over 40.
Employers may try to convince their workers that the way they are being compensated falls within legal guidelines. It is important that employees are aware of what they are entitled to and have representation that has the skill to protect their rights.
