Tampa Unpaid Wages Attorneys Whittel & Melton :: Labor Department Threatens Tampa Tech Firm With Legal Action

April 17, 2012

The U.S. Department of Labor notified a Tampa technology company on Monday that it may be fined and could face legal action if the company does not reimburse its employees for back pay.

The Ybor City based company has allegedly failed on and off for months to make payroll.

The company CEO apparently sent an e-mail to a bulk of employees Monday announcing the need to reluctantly send employees home until company financing and funding can be worked out.

According to a Department of Labor spokesman, the company has been on the agency’s radar since at least January for violating fair labor standards laws. Since then, the company has apparently made some payments to employees, but is still behind.

Unfortunately, employment violations occur on a daily basis at businesses across the United States. Numerous Florida workers are denied compensation, paid less than minimum wage and deprived of commission and other entitled bonuses. These are violations of state and federal labor laws and these actions must be investigated in order to verify what additional payments you are owed as an employee.

The Florida Unpaid Wages Attorneys can help employees of all income levels receive the money that they have rightfully earned. Whether you are an hourly or salaried employee, an independent contractor or executive professional, our trial attorneys can help you pursue full compensation for unpaid wages. There is a wide array of potential claims for unpaid wages in Florida, including:

  • Failure to pay minimum wage
  • Untimely payment of final check
  • Failure to pay bonuses or commissions
  • Failure to provide reimbursement for business and travel expenses
  • Failure to pay vacation time
  • tips and other wages
  • Breach of contract
  • Improper classification of workers

Employees that have been waiting to collect unpaid wages or overtime may be entitled to additional pay. When an employer fails to pay an employee in a timely manner for wages owed, a penalty can be added to the owed amount. The Florida Unpaid Wages Attorneys at Whittel & Melton can help you recover the wages you are owed under the law.

If your current employer has failed to pay you the full compensation you are owed, contact the Florida Unpaid Wages Attorneys at Whittel & Melton online or call our Tampa office at 813-221-3200 or reach us statewide and toll-free at 1-866-608-5LAW (5529).
