Overtime Pay Entitlement

Am I Entitled to Overtime Pay?

According to the provisions of the Employment Standards Act, not everyone in Ontario is entitled to overtime pay. However, it is a myth that salaried workers are not ever entitled to overtime pay, while hourly workers are. Still, grey areas can exist depending on your particular employment contract.

Not all people with executive titles are managers and not all people who work shifts are hourly workers. If you are overworked and/or underpaid, you should consult with an experienced employment lawyer.

Depending on your specific situation, you have options with Peter A. McSherry Employment Lawyers in Guelph. I serve the needs of employees, exclusively, in Ontario. I help people seek the compensation they are entitled to, even following wrongful dismissal or constructive dismissal. If you were putting in extra hours, and then you were pushed out of your job, you may be entitled to compensation for every unpaid hour you worked.

Contact me to discuss the facts of your case, discover your options and assess potential damages. Call me in Guelph at 519-821-5465 or contact me by e-mail to schedule a consultation.

Guelph Lawyer Representing Employees in Overtime Pay Disputes

If you have a log of your hours, we can prove exactly what time you have not been compensated for properly. An hour log is best, but there are several other ways to prove your overtime pay claim, including e-mail records and witness testimony. Following a full assessment of the facts and evidence of your case, there are three approaches to seek the compensation you deserve. As your lawyer, I will evaluate whether negotiations, a lawsuit or a complaint with the Ministry of Labour is our best strategy; it all depends on your unique situation.

My approach to your case is backed by sound reason, years of experience, a network of resources and the skills to take on even the most aggressive and largest employers. I can work to represent your best interests and to vigorously pursue your best possible outcome. I understand how vital your case is to you and your family.
