Wage Hour Defense

The Office of Wage-Hour, District of Columbia Department of Employment Services, is vested with the authority to require employers to pay minimum wages, overtime compensation, and related benefits to persons employed by employers other than the United States or District of Columbia governments.

Due to the increasing number of wage and hour lawsuits filed under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and its state counterparts, wage and hour law is becoming the U.S.’s fastest growing type of litigation. This type of litigation affects companies in all types of industries and many employers are not compliant with wage and hour laws, whether knowingly or not.

Our office represents employers accused of not correctly paying their employees. We represent employers at the D.C. Office of Wage-Hour as well as in D.C. local courts and federal courts when employees file a claim against the employer.
