Have you been denied payment of proper wages for the time you have worked in New Jersey or Pennsylvania?
If so, we may be able to help. A rapidly growing field of employment law involves group and class actions to secure proper wages and overtime pay for time worked. This includes paying the applicable “prevailing wage” on a government contract job and paying time and one-half when due for overtime hours worked.
Common circumstances where employees are wrongfully denied overtime pay or employment benefits involve misclassification of an employee as an independent contractor, or misclassification of a non-exempt employee as being exempt from overtime pay. On the first type of misclassification, the New Jersey Supreme Court issued a late 2014 decision calling for application of a uniform “ABC” test to distinguish employees from independent contractors. Under this test, the crucial factor is employer control over the alleged “employee.”
