Orlando Unpaid Wages Attorneys Protect Employees’ Rights
The law establishes that all employees must be properly compensated for all hours worked in Florida. However, even today, many employees go through the unfair situation of being denied payment of their earnings, including their salary, royalties, vacation pay, rent and more. Unpaid wage claims are governed by State law.
The employment law attorneys at LaBar Adams are committed to protect the rights of employees in Orlando, Winter Park, Kissimmee and anywhere in Central Florida.

- vacation pay
- dismissal wages
- payments in kind
- and reasonable value of board, rent, housing, lodging
and any other similar advantage received from the individual’s employer.
