Wage and hour disputes leads to payout for employees

Tennessee employees deserve payment for hours worked, and eligible employees deserve appropriate overtime pay for anytime they work over their normal 40-hour workweek. When a company engages in unfair pay practices and fails to pay workers what they deserve, it may result in wage and hour disputes. One company recently paid employees a settlement to cover lost wages and unpaid overtime.

Wage-and-hour disputes after resort under pays its employees

For individuals who work in the hospitality industry in Tennessee, they know how difficult it is to work in this field. Customers can be demanding, the hours are long and the work is hard. At the very least, they should be receiving fair pay for the hours they work, including overtime hours. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, as illustrated by wage-and-hour disputes in another state that resulted in a finding that a resort underpaid its workers by $46,000.

Mass torts claims for asbestos may include cosmetics

Many in Tennessee may believe that asbestos is something that does not affect them.

Fighting for beneficial resolution to wage and hour disputes

Employers are responsible for paying workers fairly. This means properly classifying them properly and paying for overtime hours worked.

Mesothelioma survival rates depend on spread

The survival rate for those with malignant pleural mesothelioma depends on a host of factors. For instance, age is often a big part of the equation, especially as this is a disease that targets older patients more than younger ones. Are these individuals more likely to have a lower survival rate due to the natural process of aging and weakening of the body that comes with it? This is just one of many questions to ask when reading your way through the numbers -- especially if you have just gotten a diagnosis and you want to consider your own outlook.
