Many employees are deprived of proper compensation by their employers, whether it be in the form of unpaid hourly or overtime wages, or bonuses and commissions. In some instances, an individual wage claim is small, and the employee often has difficulty finding an attorney to handle the case and help end the unlawful practices. At SGB, we find that the most effective means to putting an end to unlawful wage practices is the class action. With a class action, we can bring similar, small claims to trial in one case and thereby vindicate the rights of a large number of employees at one time. We also have the resources and experience to take on the country’s largest employers, including Fortune 500 companies like Wal-Mart, Sears, and Tyson Foods.
In other instances, the bonuses or commissions unlawfully withheld can be substantial. Executives and other individuals across industries are often entitled to receive short-term or long-term compensation in the form of an annual bonus, a retention bonus, a long-term incentive or other combination of cash, stock, options, or comparable equity. SGB attorneys have successfully litigated to ensure that employees receive a bonus that has been earned.
SGB attorneys are also familiar with various industries and job roles that rely on commissions as part of the employee’s overall compensation.
