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!

You have really been fun to work with and are so down to earth.

I just wanted to say congratulations – I know you guys have worked very hard on my lawsuit. While there are attorneys who make the client feel like a cardboard box and afraid to say anything, it is easy to talk to you!

I want to express my sincere thanks to you.

I want to express my sincere thanks to you for getting justice for my son and restoring my hope in humanity. After his death, I labored for over one-and-a-half years to find an attorney to file the case. I am grateful to you and your firm for your unwavering belief in this case.

I couldn’t have asked for better representation and counsel.

Thank you to Tad for representing me on my severance agreement. The entire negotiation was handled efficiently and in an extremely professional manner. I also really appreciated that Tad was transparent about the process and timelines, as well as that he was willing to discuss strategy with me.

There are no words for my gratitude.

I’m happy to put this case behind me once and for all. I greatly appreciate your assistance throughout this process. Thank you, Tad! I’m happily employed now and am enjoying a fresh start.

Mr. Turner was a guiding light.

Going through the legal process was foreign and nerve-racking for me but I was able to garner confidence from my attorney. I am fully confident he was the key factor in the success of my outcome.

WOW! – you truly have left a great impression on us.

My wife and I really appreciate all your help. You did a wonderful job with our lawsuit and you actually genuinely tried to help us again.

Mr. Watkins exceeded my expectations.

Mr. Watkins and his team were excellent to work with. Mr. Watkins is a very competent and trustworthy attorney. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case. I highly recommend attorney Kenneth Watkins.

Kenneth Watkins is very knowledgeable.

Being a healthcare professor myself, I was impressed to know that he was so well read and knew the medical jargon (terminology) when evaluating individual cases. I found him to be very professional, credible, and personable.
