Wage and Hour Law

Matthews & Greene attorneys are deeply versed in the contemporary wage & hour law issues facing employers. We have many years of experience in advising employers regarding compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Davis Bacon Act, the Service Contract Act, and similar state laws. We conduct compliance audits, assist employers in determining whether employees are truly exempt from minimum wage and hour laws. We also design piece-rate and commission pay plans, bonus plans and vacation and sick-leave policies.

We represent our clients in investigations and enforcement actions conducted by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division and similar state agencies. Additionally, we defend wage and hour lawsuits in court, including class and collective actions. These lawsuits involve such issues as overtime, missed meal and break periods, prevailing ages, and recordkeeping and payroll deductions.
