You work hard for your employer and are entitled to be paid for what you have earned. Some employers, whether intentionally or because of confusion over the wage laws, fail to pay employees all the wages they deserve. Our New Hampshire overtime wage hour dispute lawyers at Douglas, Leonard & Garvey, P.C. regularly handle overtime and wage and hour claims at the NH Department of Labor.
What is a Wage and Hour Claim?
This type of claim may be filed by an employee against their employer to recover money that they are owed. If your employer failed to pay you standard or overtime wages, you may have a case.
When is Overtime Paid in New Hampshire?
An employee may be paid 1.5 times the regular rate of pay for any hours worked over 40 within a week. New Hampshire does not require overtime pay for work done on weekends, holidays, or for working more than 8 hours in one day.
