Wage & Hour Law

Greenville Wage and Hour Attorney

The Mann Law Firm tackles workplace violations

When most people think of wage and hour law, they think of minimum wage violations. There’s much more to it than that.

Wage and hour attorney John Mann represents all types of employees in various industries in and around Greenville — radiation technicians at hospitals, production workers on assembly lines and retail workers, to name a few — in wage and hour cases including:

  • Refusal to pay for overtime work
  • Misclassification as exempt from overtime pay
  • Failure to pay for time required for  travel, putting on and taking off work clothes and gear, and other required work activities
  • Minimum wage violations
  • Failure to provide meal and rest breaks
  • Improper wage deductions
  • Forfeiture of vacation days
  • Failure to reimburse for expenses and uniforms
  • Improper classification as an independent contractor

Don’t wait until after you’ve been let go

Many clients John Mann has helped during the past 30 years realized they weren’t being properly compensated only after they were terminated. It’s a tough situation to be in, but it’s not hopeless.

Unfortunately, some employers try to get away without compensating their employees for what’s owed them, such as unused vacation days and money laid out in good faith for damaged company property. Other employers incorrectly classify certain workers as independent contractors.

Time limits are very important in wage claims. A qualified South Carolina wage and hour attorney at the Mann Law Firm in Greenville, SC knows how federal and state laws work to protect you.

The Fair Labor Standards Act

The federal Fair Labor Standards Act is the single most important law when it comes to wage and hour issues. The law defines the work week as 40 hours, provides for overtime pay, regulates child labor and establishes a federal minimum wage.

  • Fast fact: The U.S. minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. South Carolina doesn’t have a state minimum wage law.

Wronged employees of large companies are encouraged to file their wage and hour claims as participants in class action lawsuits. Class action suits allow hundreds or thousands of similarly situated employees to sue a large offending employer as part of a single lawsuit.
