Unpaid Wages

“A fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work.” This is what Franklin Roosevelt observed as a fundamental underpinning of our economy in 1937. As a result, Congress enacted the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”). The FLSA ensures that you should be paid for ALL of your work and should be paid a premium for ALL overtime work. As Kansas City, Missouri, labor law lawyers, we strive to protect these rights.

Our Labor Law Lawyers Can Help Protect Your Rights.

Many employees who are entitled to unpaid wages for overtime, commissions, and vacation time are not receiving these wages. If you are working more than 40 hours per week but are not being paid for it, contact our labor law attorneys today — you may be entitled to unpaid wages. Even if you are an office worker and are paid on a salary, you may still be entitled to unpaid wages for overtime. Workers in numerous industries including banking, telecommunications, manufacturing, television production, commissioned sales, and independent contractors may  be eligible for unpaid wages.
