Indiana Prevailing Wage Claims

The Federal Department of Labor requires employers to pay a prevailing wage for all public works projects, such as the millions of economic stimulus projects in Indiana and throughout the country. Additionally, Indiana law requires public work project bids to identify the prevailing wage for each classification of worker involved in the project, including electricians, carpenters, and other contractors or subcontractors. For most nonunion workers, the prevailing wage to which they are entitled is higher than their regular project wages.

Unfortunately, many nonunion employers repeatedly violate this provision by paying the regular rate rather than the prevailing wage. Our Indianapolis prevailing wage claims attorneys at Employment Law Office of John H. Haskin & Associates, LLC, represent employees throughout Indiana in pursuing claims against their employers for failing to pay the prevailing wage on these public works projects.

Indiana Unpaid Overtime Class-Action Attorneys

The Fair Labor Standards Act and the Indiana wage statute require employers to pay proper overtime to employees when due. Unfortunately, many employers fail to pay overtime by misclassifying employees as exempt (salaried employees), failing to pay for meal and rest breaks not taken (or for when employees are required to work during meal or rest breaks), or failing to pay for work completed off-the-clock (such as when an employer requires hourly employees to work before or after "clocking in").

Employment Law Office of John H. Haskin & Associates, LLC, represents employees throughout Indiana in unpaid overtime class actions. Our lawyers have extensive experience handling complex wage claim class-action litigation involving failure to pay overtime wages, and we provide effective representation to Indiana workers in individual failure to pay overtime wage claims.
