Guiding You Through All Stages of Your Overtime or Minimum Wage Claim
Federal labor laws such as the Fair Labor Standards Act set the overtime rules here in Arizona. Under these laws, employees who work excess hours beyond 40 hours a week are typically entitled to overtime pay.
Arizona law sets the minimum wage at $10 per hour. Some workers, such as those who commonly receive tips, are subject to special rules when it comes to state minimum wage law.

We can conduct detailed investigations, including pay stub reviews, to help you know if your employer has been paying you less than it is required to under these laws.
