Federal and state employment laws covering hourly wages and overtime pay are complex. Many employers, both large and small, fail to comply with these laws, denying employees pay and benefits and exposing the employer to potentially costly lawsuits.

We have a comprehensive understanding of all applicable laws, including the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Washington Minimum Wage Act and the Washington Wage Payment Act.

Results-Oriented Representation In All Types Of Pay Disputes
The law classifies employees as either "exempt" or "nonexempt" based on specific criteria. Many employers fail to apply these criteria properly, leading to improper classifications. Employees who are misclassified may be denied the overtime pay and benefits they are entitled to under the law.
Our law firm represents clients in matters involving:
- Failure to pay overtime
- Misclassification of employees
- Misclassification of contractors
- Denial of break time
- Other wage and hour violations
An employee who has the title "manager" or who supervises other employees is not necessarily exempt from wage and hour laws.
CNRWA has a successful record representing clients in litigation in Washington federal and state courts, as well as other venues including the Washington State Human Rights Commission and the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). When you retain us to represent you, our attorneys will represent you, seeking all of the pay and benefits you are entitled to receive.
