Michigan Unpaid Wage Lawyer – Roadside Assistance Technicians

 

When vehicles break down, roadside technicians are there to help. But are their employers paying them all they deserve?

On streets and highways across the U.S., roadside assistance workers frequently come to our rescue. The sad truth is that many of them are being cheated out of an honest day’s wages.

An increasing number of roadside assistance companies have been accused of withholding hourly compensation from roadside technicians, engaging in wage theft by means of:

  • Wrongfully classifying workers as independent contractors to avoid paying overtime
  • Withholding pay for time spent on administrative tasks performed before or after workers’ shifts
  • Attempting to circumvent wage and hour laws by designating hourly workers as “managers” and creating misleading job descriptions and workplace policies

Fortunately, employment laws such as the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and various state statutes protect roadside assistance technicians and other hourly workers from employment abuses like these.

If you believe that you’ve been the victim of wage theft and are owed compensation, please contact the attorneys Sommers Schwartz’s Employment Litigation Group for a free consultation. We’ve represented thousands of hard-working employees in individual and class action lawsuits, and can help you as well!

My matter was handled and prosecuted above my expectations and resulted in a positive outcome – other attorneys I contacted weren’t even interested in representing me. I would strongly recommend Sommers Schwartz and Mr. Watkins.

I want to thank you for your excellent representation.

Going through this process was a totally new experience for me, but the way you and your firm conducted it was certainly reassuring. Please extend my gratitude to all the people involved.

Bravo, Tucker!

I had a trial lawyer and judge in my office today and gave credit to you as the source of the information I provided them. They both recognized your excellence and authority and were duly impressed.

“You do have a voice, and they will make sure your voice is heard!”

I had been working for an employer I knew was engaging in unethical business practices by requiring employees to work off the clock without compensation. Searching the internet for help in getting the money due me, I found Sommers Schwartz, P.C.! I decided to give them a call and within a…
