Have you been denied wages (overtime pay or minimum wage) you are rightfully owed?
You can file a complaint with the United States Department of Labor (DOL) to attempt to recover what you are owed. However, the process can be confusing. Below, you can learn more about this process and how to get through it.
The Maryland unpaid overtime lawyers at The Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl can help guide you through each step in the process, pursuing the fair compensation you deserve.
When filing a complaint with the DOL's Wage and Hour Division (WHD), you must include certain information:
It may also be helpful to include additional information in your complaint if you have access to it, such as:
If you do not have all the information required for filing a complaint with the WHD, gather as much information as possible.
Workers in most cases must file unpaid wages complaints within a two-year statute of limitations, that starts from the date of the unpaid wages. You may not be able to recover compensation for unpaid wages earned over two years prior to filing your complaint.
In cases where your employer willfully withheld wages and committed payment violations, the statute of limitations is three years instead of two.
Working with an employment lawyer will help ensure your complaint is filed within the appropriate timeframe to ensure you have the chance to pursue compensation for your unpaid wages. An attorney will also advise you about what information you need to collect, and help you gather evidence to prove your claim of unpaid wages.
