Full-Service Legal Counsel

Our Minneapolis employment law lawyers offer our clients full-service legal counsel that is designed to get results. If you are an employee who hasn’t been compensated properly for your time as stated by federal law or Minnesota statute, we will gather all of the evidence in the matter that supports your claim, evaluate it, and file the necessary documentation that will help you receive compensation for your unpaid wages. We will advocate for you at every proceeding or hearing in court or before any of the applicable government agencies.

The Claims that we can help you with include:

  • Misclassification of exempt and non-exempt employment

We have worked with employees working a number of occupations within a variety of industries. We have handled cases where employees have not received commission payments or when commission has not been paid under the required timeline detailed under Minnesota employment statutes and federal law.

Effective Representation For Employers

Employers can also work with a Minnesota employment law lawyer who knows how to deal with allegations regarding wage and hour law violations. Our attorneys will review all existing policies of the employer, as well as the details surrounding the employee’s job. All of this information is used to create an effective defense against the claims. In the meantime, any issues can be addressed so that future litigation can be avoided.

This is because there are a number of acts that can fall into this category, such as not paying for overtime or paying a person much less than another person of equal experience doing the same job. If you feel that you have been paid an unfair wage, not paid what you are owed, or you have not been paid for the hours that you have worked, you can utilize the services of a highly experienced attorney who knows how to get results.
