Kansas City Wage and Hour Litigation Attorney


The law if very clear that employees should be paid what they're worth.  Sadly, many still do not make minimum wage.  Employers have become quite creative at paying their employees as little as possible.  Often, the means they use for doing this are illegal.  The Fair Labor Standards Act, the Kansas Wage Payment Act, and the Missouri Minimum Wage Law protect employees from committing wage and hour violations.

The Fair Labor Standards Act guarantees covered employees minimum wage for the first 40 hours, plus time and a half for each hour of overtime.  Click here to find out more about the Fair Labor Standards Act.  Feel free to set up a consultation, if you believe your employer has violated the FLSA

In Kansas, employer-employee relationships are controlled by the Kansas Wage Payment Act.  Under the Act, employers cannot refuse to pay their employees wages once they are earned.  They cannot deduct wages once they are earned, either.  Click here to learn more about the KWPA.  If your employer may have violated the KWPA, please feel free to email or call.  

In Missouri, the Missouri Minimum Wage Law protects covered workers from being paid less than minimum wage.  It also requires employers to pay covered employees working more than 40 hours time and a half for each hour of overtime.  Click here to find out about more about the MMWL.  Do not hesitate to set up a consultation, if you believe your employer may have violated the MMWL.
