The Chicago Overtime Law Center has a team of overtime attorneys who focus on nationwide class action lawsuits and work out of Chicago and Oak Brook offices. We protect unpaid workers who haven’t received overtime throughout the Chicago area including in DuPage, and Cook Counties. Our Joliet overtime lawyers are intimately familiar with the issues that arise during wage claim litigation, and we know the laws that govern overtime cases well. Many employers misclassify employees as being exempt from overtime laws and pay workers salaries instead of hourly wages in order to avoid paying them overtime. Some employers mistakenly classify employees as exempt and others intentionally do so in order to circumvent the law. In either case, workers do not receive the wages they should, and a lawsuit may be the only way to recover their earned wages. DiTommaso Lubin Austermuehle is based in Chicago, and represents clients throughout the country who have not been paid for the overtime hours that they worked. If you believe that you are owed overtime wages, contact one of our Chicago wage and hour attorneys by phone at (312) 869-4095, or through our online form.
