Miami Unpaid Wage Lawyer

Miami Based Firm Helping Recover Unpaid Wages

It happens, being a team player is required. Putting that extra time in helps the company & your co-workers.
Maybe, you’ve been promised a raise after, but it’s long overdue or told money is tight, yet your workload hasn’t decreased, and your pay isn’t scaling with minimum wage.

In either case, at some point, enough is enough.

Don’t lose sight of what’s essential. You deserve fair pay for honest work.

It doesn’t matter how or when this started. The longer you go unpaid, the harder it is to say something, and the easier it is to let things slide, only adding to your stress.

Please don’t wait until your stress boils over, and don’t do it alone.

Find an attorney who knows the law & who is willing to fight for your rights.

It’s an uphill hike navigating the law and learning what your rights are. Instead, seek someone who knows the law, has extensive experience practicing in the courtroom, and takes that knowledge to help you get what you’re owed.

The attorneys at BT Law Group have extensive experience advising clients on, auditing and litigating claims involving:

  • Overtime pay

  • Misclassification

  • Working “off-the-clock.”
  • Severance pay

Don’t go it yourself, and don’t shop around for bargain attorneys either. You’re losing valuable time the longer you wait. Which only lays on more stress and anxiety, and ever-decreasing options.

Knowledge is power. Learn which laws protect your rights as an employee in Florida.

Wage and hour laws govern the wages an employer must pay its employees and the hours for which an employer must compensate its employees.

The most well-known wage and hour laws are minimum wage laws and overtime laws. Other wage and hour laws include child labor laws.

In Florida, employees and employers are subject to federal law (for example, the Fair Labor Standards Act), Florida law (for example, the Florida Minimum Wage Act, which can be found at Fla. Stat. § 448.110), and local ordinances (for example, the Miami-Dade County Wage Theft Ordinance which can be found at Chapter 22 of the Miami-Dade County Code).

Our Process
1.
Investigate

As a first step, your assigned legal team will gather and review records related to your claim, including any employment contract or offer letter, time sheets, any relevant communications, and any disciplinary actions, including performance improvement plans or termination paperwork.

These documents will help your attorneys evaluate your claims and develop a strategy to obtain the best results for your situation.

2.
Formulate

Once your legal team completes the initial investigation, they will work with you to determine the best legal strategy for your situation. Your legal team will make recommendations and will work with you to formulate the most effective approach to obtain your desired outcome.

3.
Advocate

After you and your legal team formulate the strategy, your legal team will advocate on your behalf to obtain your desired outcome. This could include negotiating a separation package, engaging in pre-suit negotiations, sending a demand letter, and/or filing a charge of discrimination or lawsuit on your behalf.

The attorneys at BT Law are experienced trial lawyers and will advocate for your rights in the courtroom as necessary.

Reviews

Jason and Anisley are one of the best decisions someone can make given the situation. They are knowledgeable, transparent, proactive and communicate with their clients. I have dealt with other attorneys in the past and I’m always frustrated because you don’t get information or you have to chase the attorney and staff down that’s not the case with them.

In finding the right lawyers to represent you, you want to have mutual respect and understanding for each other and clear communication to achieve your goals. BT Law Group is just that. They not only represented me to their fullest abilities, but went above and beyond to truly understand my goals and priorities and provide sound legal advice to achieve such. It was a pleasure working with both Anisley and Jason, I’d highly recommend them.

We very much enjoyed BT Law Group’s founding partner, Anisley Tarragona service and attention to detail. From the onset her approach was practical and conscious of providing the best legal advice while being mindful of suggesting cost effective, conservative solutions. We find her to be a great business partner to service all our employment related legal needs.

I received a prompt and very professional service by the BT Law Group. Ms Tarragona provides tailored advice in the best interest of the client. She was meticulous and explained the pros and cons of my case in very simple terms which allowed me to consider and take the best decision. Very happy with the service. Highly recommended.

Absolutely wonderful and professional services. Represented my mom in a caring and personalized manner. Knowledgeable and ethical. Thank you!

I always consult BT Law Group for employment law matters. They are responsive, practical and efficient. I recommend them to colleagues and friends.
