Unpaid Overtime for Minimum Wage Employees

Pennsylvania Rights to Overtime Attorneys

Under Pennsylvania and federal law, the majority of employees paid on an hourly basis are entitled to overtime pay for any hours worked more than 40 in a single week. Pennsylvania's minimum wage is currently $7.25, and the minimum overtime wage is $10.88. If you earn minimum wage and your employer is not paying you proper amounts of overtime pay, you have a legal claim for damages. The law firm of Samuel J. Cordes & Associates is located in Pittsburgh and represents employees across Western Pennsylvania who have not been paid proper amounts of overtime. We also represent employees in legal claims involving violations of Pennsylvania's Minimum Wage Act.

Violations of the Minimum Wage Act can happen under a number of circumstances. For instance, many employees who work on commission, either in whole or in part, the employee's wages for each hour worked must meet minimum wage, including any overtime pay. Employers can also pay "tipped employees" a minimum of $2.83 per hour if an employee receives as little as $30.00 a month in tips. If the employee's tips do not reach minimum wage, the employer is required to make up the difference.

There are certain legal exceptions to state and federal minimum wage laws. To learn more about your situation, you need to talk to a lawyer with substantial knowledge of the relevant employment laws. Attorney Sam Cordes has more than 20 years of experience representing working people across the state. Attorney John Black has more than a decade of legal experience.
