Wage and Hour Litigation

Wage and hour lawsuits against companies have been steadily on the rise in recent years. Particularly in Massachusetts, where by statute successful plaintiffs are entitled to mandatory treble damages and recovery of their attorneys’ fees, the consequences of an adverse finding against an employer can be quite significant. On the other hand, the law provides strong protections to employees against wrongful conduct by employers. Belcher Fitzgerald’s employment attorneys have represented employers and individuals including those in the hospitality, financial services, software, and food services industries in claims relating to:

  • Allocation and sharing of tips and "service charges"
  • Misclassification of workers as independent contractors
  • Misclassification of employees as exempt
  • Improper withholding of wages and deductions from wages
  • Regular rate and overtime rate issues
  • Miscalculation and failure to pay commissions and bonuses
