Wage and Hours Disputes
Lawyer Representing Employees Denied Overtime Pay
Federal law requires employers to pay overtime to nonexempt employees. However, employers often deprive their employees of overtime pay through mis-classification, deceit or other unlawful practices. Wage and hour disputes frequently arise from workers’ compensation claims. Mario Trespalacios is a workers’ compensation attorney who frequently handles wage and hour disputes arising from workers’ comp claims.
There are many ways in which employers violate employment laws and employee rights such as:
- Forcing you to work off the clock or through your lunch break

Any of these actions may be the basis for action against your employer. Mr. Trespalacios is a seasoned advocate with a sound understanding of the law. He aggressively enforces his clients’ rights to the fullest extent of Florida law.
