Helping Employees Receive Proper Compensation
Employees in Massachusetts and New Hampshire deserve to be properly compensated for their work, as defined by both federal and state laws.
At Kajko, Weisman & Colasanti, LLP, our attorneys help clients who are concerned they are not being paid the proper amount or in a timely fashion. With offices across Massachusetts and New Hampshire, we will work with you to make sure your employer is treating you fairly.
The Law Is On The Side Of Employees
The Wage and Tip acts in Massachusetts protect employees and guarantee their right to be paid promptly and fairly.
More specifically, employees are entitled to:
- Receive tips the same day they earn them
- A break, provided they work more than six consecutive hours in a day
- Protection from unwarranted paycheck deductions
The Tip Act also protects employees from sharing their tips with a manager or supervisor.
For employers that fail to comply with the Wage Act, the penalties are steep, including mandatory triple damages and coverage of attorney’s fees.
At our firm, our lawyers recognize that employees who live on tips may be vulnerable. We take pride in representing those who have been treated unfairly by their employer.
We will work with you to compile the necessary documentation and build the case in your favor. We work quickly, because we know that for many, every paycheck counts. We handle both individual and class-action employment cases.
