This Fort Lauderdale Overtime Lawyer Gets People Paid
Six Fort Lauderdale Employees Worked For a Corner Market, Gas Station and Check Cashing Store
The store almost exclusively hired immigrants, many of whom were undocumented workers, had no social security numbers or had various other paperwork problems with regard to their legal employment status. Many of these employees worked in excess of 70 hours per week, but the company refused to pay them overtime rates for the hours in excess of 40 per week.
Whenever employees brought this to the company’s attention, the owner of the company would remind them of their legal status and the fact that they would have a hard time finding another job.
Loren Law Group filed suit against the Fort Lauderdale employer to collect the monies due its employees.

A Maintenance Technician Worked For an Air Conditioning Repair Company That Required Him to Arrive at Work Every Day at 8 A.M.
However, he was then required to wait while the company arranged its orders and decided which technicians would go to which job. The maintenance technicians were not allowed to leave the company promises until they were assigned a job, but the company did not pay them for their time until they received their first assignment
Loren Law Group filed suit on the Fort Lauderdale employee’s behalf to recover his last two weeks of pay, despite the fact that the company had closed its doors and had failed to maintain its legal status.
When the employee had first accepted employment with the company, the owner of the company had handed him a business card which listed not only her company but also a much larger construction company on the face of the card.
Moreover, when the company first refused to pay the employee’s last two weeks of work, the employer called the larger company and spoke to someone who was fully aware of his employment status with the smaller company and told him that they would look into the matter and get back to him.
During the course of litigation, Loren Law Group discovered that the Miami company was not properly licensed and was using the contractor’s license of the larger company.
