Put a Powerful Legal Team on Your Side 

When your employer fails to pay you for every hour you have worked or fails to provide mandated meals or rest breaks, they have not only broken the law—they have also broken their obligation to treat you fairly. At Josephson Dunlap, we understand the impact this can have on your life. If your employer violated your rights, you may be struggling to make ends meet without the rightful wages you are owed. You may be dealing with significant emotional and psychological distress, as well as difficulties keeping or obtaining employment. Our goal is to not only recover the unpaid wages you have earned, but also to seek fair compensation for the additional physical, financial, and psychological damages you have suffered.

As a renowned national unpaid wages law firm, we are laser-focused on our mission of obtaining justice for our clients. If you believe that your employer has violated your rights, we encourage you to reach out to our team today to learn how we can help you fight for what you are owed.
