This post is intended to provide you with information about overtime and wage cases filed throughout the country by other law firms and the government. It serves to give you an idea of the types of issues which are currently being litigated by employment lawyers as well as those which have been “settled.”
As a courtesy to you, we are providing the court name, case number and date filed to facilitate your search for it on the federal PACER website. Current information regarding case status, parties and attorneys is available on PACER to anyone who opens an account with them.
Please also note that some cases we report on were initiated by the Department of Labor and then settled without having been filed in Federal Court and thus will not be available on the PACER website. For these cases we generally provide a brief summary of the findings and results.
Please feel free to complete the form below for submission to our law firm if you would like more information about your possible employment claim. A representative will review it and contact you. Please allow one business day for someone to contact you and if you do not hear back from us then it is possible that we did not receive it. This is a FREE consultation and you will not be charged for this call. Also please be advised that, merely by submitting this form, no Attorney-Client relationship is formed with the law firm. The ONLY way that an Attorney-Client relationship with the Law Office of Rose H. Robbins is formed is by specifically written agreement signed by you and the Law Office of Rose H. Robbins.
