Wage and Hour Claims
The employment litigation attorneys at McLane have significant experience in handling wage and hour disputes for employers in a variety of industries throughout New England and beyond. In every wage and hour case, we apply our core philosophy of first understanding your business, and then adding our expertise and perspective to the issues at hand. We bring enthusiastic dedication to all litigation matters.
We regularly appear in state courts and agencies related to claims filed by high-level executives and other employees for unpaid wages, bonuses, and vacation time, as well as claims for commissions by independent contractors. For example, in a case before the New Hampshire Superior Court, we represented the New Hampshire franchisee of a national residential fire restoration company against a wage claim asserted by a former salesperson.
We assist companies facing wage and hour audits by federal and state government agencies. Should an employer be found to have violated wage and hour laws, our attorneys are skilled at negotiating with government agencies to reduce civil penalties and fines. A prominent aspect of our wage and hour practice is to advise companies on compliance with relevant laws and regulations, including conducting internal training with key HR personnel. We can also help businesses with internal audits as part of a risk management program.
