Wage & Hour Disputes in Miami, FLWhen it comes to saving money, some employers use common tactics to avoid paying employees what they are owed. In Florida, employees are entitled to time-and-a-half for every hour over 40 within a single workweek, according to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). However, some employers will misclassify employees and use other tactics to get out of paying overtime costs, commission, and the Florida minimum wage, which is currently $8.25 per hour (2018). An experienced Miami labor lawyer can help you build a strong case against your employer and help you recover back pay and other unpaid wages.

Excellent attorney. Mr. Matt Fenton agreed to take my case, and literally took care of business in a very courteous, prompt, and professional manner. He informed me upfront what to expect, approximately how much to expect, and that he would recover damages for me in my employee/employer dispute. He was true to his word. It was a pleasure to work with him and the firm. The paralegals were very efficient and kept in close contact, keeping me up to date throughout the whole process start to finish. Job well done by all!! Thank you Matt Fenton, Monica Rivera, and Tanya Soriano
