Here at Legal Consumer, we want to help people find answers to everyday legal questions about important topics like bankruptcy, Obamacare, inheritance, and more.
Now, we’ve turned our attention to employment law. Because, while almost everyone has (or has had) a job, it can be surprisingly tough to get good, high-quality local information about workplace rights.
Wage and hour questions -- about overtime, minimum wage, tips, paycheck deductions, and more -- come up every day. Your hours for your employer's wages is the basic exchange of the employment relationship. Yet, it can be tough to find accurate, up-to-date, and easily understood information about federal, state, and local wage and hour laws.
On this website, when you choose your state or enter your zip code, you will quickly learn:
- the minimum wage where you work
- who is eligible for overtime (and how to calculate what you are owed)
- when you should get your final paycheck
- whether your employer is handling your tips properly
- what to do if your employer is violating wage and hour laws,
- and more.
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to get the information, forms, and resources you need to understand and enforce your wage and hour rights, so you can make sure you are paid, legally and on time, for all of your work.
