Misclassification of employees robbing them of overtime pay

 Working overtime can be incredibly lucrative for many employees in Pennsylvania. Due to both state and federal wage & hours laws that dictate the payment of overtime, it is a protected right for workers. However, at the Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC, our staff often hears from clients that their employers failed to pay them their due by misclassifying their work.

At-will termination explained

Pennsylvania is considered an employment-at-will state. This means that employees without contracts may be terminated at any time for any reason the employer deems appropriate to the circumstances. This could include layoffs as well as terminations. The law also gives employees the right to leave their companies at any time with no notice, free from the potential for litigation. Despite the name, no state is completely “at-will” due to the protections offered by the State of Pennsylvania and the federal government.
