Wage & Hour

Attorneys at KSC Law have experience representing employees who been denied their lawful wages

Unpaid Overtime

KSC Law have substantial experience in representing employees in recovering overtime pay under both Maryland and federal law. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires employers to pay non-exempt employees at a rate of not less than one and one-half times their regular rate of pay for hours worked in excess of forty in a workweek. The overtime provision of the FLSA do not protect all employees, however, since there are certain exemptions that apply based upon the type of work being performed and/or the type of business involved. All too often, employers misclassify employees as “exempt” to avoid overtime pay obligations. We can help evaluate whether you are truly “exempt” and whether you are entitled to payment for the overtime you have worked.

Unpaid Wages & Time “Off-the-Clock”

Workers are entitled to be paid for their time from the moment they arrive at their job to the end of the workday, with few exceptions. Time spent at the work site preparing for the job is time spent serving your employer. This includes time spent putting on a uniform or protective gear, loading vehicles and gathering supplies. You may be entitled to compensation for the time spent on these activities.
We help employees recover unpaid wages for time spent:

  • Driving to pick-up or drop-off materials
  • Putting on uniforms and protective gear
  • Inspecting, cleaning and maintaining equipment
  • Night and weekend setup duties
  • Workplace cleanup

Wage Deductions

Employees are entitled to recover amounts unlawfully deducted from their pay. Under the Maryland Wage Payment and Collection Law wage means all compensation that is due to an employee for employment, and includes a bonus, a commission, a fringe benefit, or any other remuneration promised for service. Maryland law prohibits employers from making deductions from an employee’s wages without the necessary authority. Our attorneys can help recover unlawful deductions made by an employer.
