Why You Should Work With Our Lawyers Instead Of With The Colorado Department Of Labor & Employment!
Experienced Attorneys May Be Able To Give You More Options & Better Results!
When you are not paid fairly, you are able to file a claim to recover those wages in one of two ways: either through the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) or with a lawyer.
Reasons you might want to file a claim include when your employer
withheld your overtime pay, or shorted your paycheck,
paid less than the amount of work you performed,
failed to pay commissions, or
committed some other form of wage theft
The CDLE offers limited choices to wronged employees. The CDLE cannot accept all claims or cases. They require employees they do help to meet certain criteria, and because they are a public agency with limited resources, it can take more than six months for them to even begin working on cases. Employees who go through the CDLE don’t get to choose who handles their case. There is a cap on how much employees who are selected are able to recover ($7500), but a quick scan of their results shows that few employees recover amounts even close to that.
On the other hand, working with skilled Colorado wage and hour lawyers may be a better option for you if you have an unpaid wage claim! At AndersonDodson, P.C., we charge on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we only get paid by your employer if there is a recovery. If, for some reason, you don’t get paid, you don’t pay us anything, so it is in our best interest to achieve the largest possible recovery for you. We are not as limited in the types of claims we can pursue, and we are typically able to resolve cases much faster than the CDLE. If you believe that your employer has withheld the rightful wages that you deserve, call today for a free consultation and learn how we can help you fight for fair compensation!
