About

Yezbak Law Offices focuses primarily on employee rights.  Helping employees recover unpaid wages and overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is our primary focus.  We represents workers individually and in FLSA class actions.

We have been successful in helping thousands of employees recover backpay for minimum wage and overtime pay violations. We have represented workers in FLSA lawsuits and class actions for minimum wage and unpaid overtime in a variety of different jobs and industries, including the restaurant and hospitality industry, the meat packing industry, and the auto parts and auto repair industries.

We are also lawyers for individual employees and groups of employees who have been subjected to unlawful employment practices such as age discrimination and harassment, race discrimination and harassment, gender discrimination and sexual harassment, disability discrimination, and wrongful termination. 

We assist executives and other employees in negotiating employment contracts and severance agreements.
