Minimum Wage Lawyer Serving Chapel Hill and Other Areas
Cary Wage and Hour Attorney
When you are at your place of employment, you have responsibilities that you work hard to fulfill. You perform the duties expected of you, advance the interests of your employer and follow the policies and procedures designed to create value for the organization.
Your employer also has obligations, and it is legally required to fulfill them. It is required to honor the terms of employment contracts, including contracts for exempt and nonexempt workers, workers paid by commission and contractors. It is obligated to provide meal and rest breaks at designated intervals. And it is required to follow overtime and minimum wage laws.
If you have questions about workplace wage and hour issues and laws, contact the employment law attorneys at The Richards Law Firm PC. We are experienced in resolving a broad range of employment-related legal issues and are committed to achieving a fair outcome for the victims of wage and hour violations.
