Employer & Corporate Violations
Illegal Background Checks and the Fair Credit Reporting Act
Various class actions are seeking millions of dollars in compensation from companies who allegedly violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). You have a right to protect your personal credit information. The FCRA is a federal law designed to prevent the exploitation of the information found during credit checks by credit reporting agencies and employers. The FCRA sets strict guidelines to ensure that background checks done by employers are legal.
Overtime Violations and the Fair Labor Standards Act
You don’t work for free. You shouldn’t have to hope your employer compensates you for all of the hours worked, you should expect it. That is the law. Unless you are exempt from the overtime requirement, there is no such thing as working “off the clock.” The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) protects employees from unfair treatment in the workplace. Employees have rights under the law.
Robocalls, Unsolicited Text Messages & Telemarketing Lawsuits (TCPA Violations)
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) is a federal law that protects you from unsolicited phone calls and text messages from telemarketers. People receiving these unwanted calls could potentially receive between $500 and $1,500 for each unsolicited call they get.
