Recovery of Unpaid Wages, Including Overtime Pay
It is against the law for an employer to not pay their employee for their work, this includes overtime pay. To recover these unpaid wages, the process can either be as easy as an employment lawyer talking to your employer on your behalf or complex to filing a claim against your employer in court or with the Ministry of Labour. In the more complex cases there are two ways in which unpaid wages can be resolved;
- Filing a claim directly to Small Claims Court or Superior Court
- Filing a claim through the Ministry of Labour
You must choose only one of these options, and cannot pursue or switch between both which is why it is beneficial to discuss with an employment lawyer the best course of action depending on your situation.
Buttar Law can assist in analyzing your situation and deciding between the courses of action, whether it is as simple as representing you in a meeting with your employer, or the pros and cons of either initiating a lawsuit or submitting a claim.
