Yezbak Law Offices focuses primarily on employee rights litigation. We have extensive experience in recovering unpaid wages for workers who have been subjected to employer pay practices that violate the minimum wage and overtime pay provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). We have successfully helped thousands of employees recover backpay in FLSA lawsuits and class actions. 

We have helped workers recover unpaid minimum wages 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.

Wage and Hour Claims Examples:

Examples of some workers we represent in FLSA wage claims:

  • Servers and Other Restaurant Workers
  • Factory Workers
  • Retail workers
  • Mechanics and Technicians
  • Pharmaceutical “Sales Representatives”

Examples of the types of wage and hour cases we handle:

  • Minimum wage claims of servers and other restaurant workers stemming from their employer’s requirements that employees pay for uniforms and to maintain the uniforms
  • Minimum wage and overtime pay claims of workers who are required to work hours that are unrecorded and unpaid (off the clock work)
  • Overtime claims resulting from the employer’s failure to include all bonuses, commissions or other incentive pay in the rate used to calculate overtime (regular rate violations)
  • Overtime violations resulting from employers providing “comp time” instead of paying overtime
  • Overtime violations resulting from the employers failure to timely pay overtime
  • Overtime claims resulting from the employers misclassification of an employee as exempt from overtime

We also assist 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
  • sexual harassment
