Maine's wage and hour laws vs. federal standards.
Did you know that Maine has a higher minimum wage than the federal minimum? This means that you may be underpaid if your employer uses the federal minimum wage to set your pay. And that means you need to recoup what is rightly yours. But under Maine labor laws, there are statutes of limitations that prevent you from bringing a case against your employer after a certain amount of time. So if you think you were underpaid, don't let time run out before it is too late.
Maine laws may also allow you to recover compensation depending on whether or not your employer intentionally withheld your money. We'll work to hold your employer responsible for back wages that you're owed.
No matter what you do or where you work, we're ready to fight the injustice you may have experienced. There may be times when you think your job is on the line. We'll stand with you to get you the money you deserve.
Contact us if a current or past employer has underpaid you.
