Being paid for the time and effort you expend at your job is always expected. When you are paid incorrectly, or not paid at all, the result falls nothing short of servitude. The Wage and Hour laws, both Federal and New Jersey, ensure that you are paid and paid properly. Sometimes the issue is a flagrant violation for not paying overtime to entire workforce and in some instances, it is more technical, i.e. not paying for accrued vacation time or part of a commission. An experienced employment lawyer at Kurkowski Law can analyze and advise whether you have been paid properly. If you have not been paid properly, allow an aggressive lawyer at Kurkowski Law to get you what you are due.
