Unpaid Wages and Back Pay

Do you suspect your pay is too low to be legal? Maybe you aren’t getting what you deserve in terms of overtime. Perhaps you got shorted on your last paycheck, or your employer is trying to withhold pay without legal justification or your consent.

Please call North Suburban Legal Services at (312) 909-6089 to schedule your free, no-obligation consultation today. We will help you evaluate your case and talk about potential next steps to get back anything your employer might owe you.

Wage and Overtime Law in Illinois

Our full-service employment law firm handles all types of business and wage law disputes. The three most common cases we see in wage and hour law are:

  • Wage theft: When your employer denies you compensation or wages that you are rightly owed, or else fails to deliver such in a timely manner.
  • Non-payment of overtime and wages: When your employer fails to pay you the full amount that you are owed based on the amount and types of hours that you worked.
  • Securing back pay: Getting your employer to pay the benefits and wages that they should have paid you already.

These issues sometimes overlap, and each case is unique. We would need to look at the exact details of your situation to know how and if we could help you collect any money your employer might owe you. We offer free, confidential consultations, so please contact us today.

We Fight to Get Your Employer to Pay You

If you are having trouble collecting money from a boss or a company, don’t give up without looking into what you’re owed. Employers do not have the final word on how and when you receive compensation.

Depending on your situation, you might have protection under the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act. The IWPCA was instituted to govern pay deductions, establish the regulation of wage payments, and help workers collect various types of compensation, such as:

  • Bonuses
  • Fringe benefits
  • Unused vacation pay

The IWPCA is a complex law. Please call us so one of our wage attorneys can help you understand how it applies to your case.

We Fight to Get You a Just Wage

We also handle cases that deal with the Illinois minimum wage law. The IMWL provides various guidelines that could apply to your case, including rules for paying minors, learners (interns, for example), and people who work overtime.

Wage-law cases often require you to go through your own records and compare them to state and federal employment law guidelines. Let us help you make sense of your case and pursue the maximum amount of compensation that you are justly owed — call us at (312) 909-6089 today.
