Kansas City Attorneys for Wage Theft and Unfair Pay Practices 

You have the right to be paid properly for all of the time you work for your employer. Federal and state laws protect employees’ rights to fair pay, including the right to be paid at a set minimum wage rate and an overtime rate for hours worked over 40 in a work week. If you think you have been cheated on your paycheck by not being paid for all hours worked and/or at low hourly rates, your employer may be in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state wage and hour laws.

If your employer failed to provide you with the wages you have earned, you may have a legal claim and the right to receive back wages. It’s essential to have an employment law attorney on your side who can advise you regarding your rights and remedies.
