About the Minimum Wage NJ Workers Deserve
Receiving at least the minimum wage iis not only what you deserve as an employee; it is also what is yours by right. At the Law Offices of Thomas More Holland, we support this right, and work tirelessly to ensure that each and every client receives his or her fair wages.
Unfortunately, many individuals do not know that their right to a minimum wage is protected by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Under the FLSA, many employees just like you have fought battles over wage rights against such corporate giants as WalMart, and won!
Additionally, reporting your employer under an FLSA case should not give you any reason to fear retaliation such as adverse action, like undesirable schedule changes, supervision or termination. By law, any employer that retaliates against you due to your FLSA case in a manner such as these may face severe consequences.
At the Law Offices of Thomas More Holland, we regularly represent workers with FLSA claims, and Attorney Thomas More Holland has represented workers for more than 30 years. So, if you believe you may have a NJ minimum wage case, do not assume what your rights are, and do not believe everything your employer says. Contact the Law Offices of Thomas More Holland today. We will investigate your claim, determine any violation of your rights, and explain the options available.
