Unpaid Overtime

Unpaid Overtime Employment Lawyer Serving Worcester, Southbridge, Leominster, Gardner, Fitchburg, Milford, Shrewsbury, and Worcester County

The Fair Labor Standards Act and the Massachusetts Wage Act both require employers to pay their employees overtime for hours worked over 40 in a workweek unless they are considered exempt from the coverage of those statutes.  The vast majority of employees are entitled to overtime, even those that are paid a salary.  Employers face a heavy burden of proof relative to successfully defending their decision not to pay an employee overtime.  In most cases, they aren’t successful in that regard.  Learn more about denial of overtime.

Steffans Legal has represented countless individuals based in Worcester County in claims of unpaid overtime, from Worcester to Southbridge, Gardner to Leominster, Fitchburg to Shrewsbury, and in Milford.  We have represented individuals in these areas on an individual basis, a group basis, in collective actions, and class actions. 

Attorney Steffans has practiced law for 13 years and during that entire time he has focused exclusively on employment law.  He has handled unpaid overtime cases in a variety of industries including retail, manufacturing, service industry, technology, education, and transportation, to name a few.

During those 13 years, Attorney Steffans has handled unpaid overtime cases in a wide variety of contexts,  including employers trying to avoid overtime obligations by paying a salary, paying regular hourly rates instead of time-and-a-half for overtime hours,  and not paying employees for work performed at home, before their shift, after their shift, or over their meal periods. 

In the last three years alone, Attorney Steffans has recovered well over $1,000,000 for employees who were wrongfully denied overtime.
