Jersey City, New Jersey Overtime Lawyers

New Jersey Overtime Lawyers
Rabner Baumgart Ben-Asher & Nirenberg, P.C., represents employees who have been denied the overtime pay they earned.

In New Jersey and New York, wage and hour laws require companies to pay time-and-a-half of overtime pay to most employees when they worked more than 40 hours in a single workweek. Accordingly, unless you fall within an exempt category, you probably are entitled to time-and-a-half pay when you work overtime hours.

Overtime laws like the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA"), the New Jersey Wage & Hour Act and New York State Labor Law can be complicated. They each include many exceptions and exemptions to the overtime pay requirement. 

As a result, companies often fail to pay employees properly because they mistakenly believe they are exempt. Other companies intentionally ignore their obligations to pay time-and-a-half to save money, at the expense of the employees they are stealing it from. But, whether or not it is intentional, it is a violation of the law to fail to pay a non-exempt employee overtime pay in both New York and New Jersey.

Our New Jersey overtime pay attorneys are experienced at representing employees. We can help determine whether you are entitled to overtime pay, calculate your damages, and fight to obtain the money you earned.

We not only represent individuals and small groups of employees, but we also handle class actions involving overtime claims. Please call us at (201) 777-2250 or contact us online to discuss your legal claim.
