Phoenix Wrongful Wage Withholding Attorney
Here in Arizona, there are strict rules against employers failing to pay workers their wages. Arizona law generally requires that employers pay workers their wages every two weeks. Under statute 352 of the Arizona Wage Act, employers are prohibited from withholding wages from their employees except under certain limited circumstances. If your employer is not paying you your wages, it is vital for you to understand your rights.
This is where our Phoenix employment attorneys can help. We are The Zoldan Law Group PLLC, and we are highly skilled at employment law matters, including wage nonpayment. We understand how stunned, worried and confused about their options employees can feel when their employers fail to pay them. We can help individuals understand if an employer has violated Arizona law and what legal actions they are allowed to take against that employer for wage nonpayment. We provide legal representation to employees in Scottsdale and throughout the Greater Phoenix area.
Helping You Assert Your Rights When Your Employer Denies You Your Wages
Workers can face a range of nonpayment-related issues, including:
- Their employer missing one or several regular wage payments
- After quitting or a termination, their employer refusing to give them their last check
- Their employer withholding wages for invalid reasons
- Their employer withholding a bonus or paid time off (PTO) for an invalid reason
- Their employer firing them or otherwise retaliating against them for submitting a complaint about a nonpayment-related violation of the Arizona Wage Act, as labor laws prohibit such retaliation
Our lawyers assist employees who are facing these issues or other wage violations. We can help you fight to get the wages you have rightfully earned and for additional damages the law may entitle you to. When employers violate the Arizona Wage Act or other state wage laws, they often are liable not only for the wages they wrongfully kept from their employee, but for additional damages as well.
