Dedicated Overtime & Unpaid Wages Lawyers in Kansas City
Federal and state wage and hour laws exist to ensure that employees are compensated fairly. When employers fail to abide by these laws, their employees suffer loss of income or even job termination. All too often, employers take advantage of employees and deprive them of their rightful compensation.
At the Hollis Law Firm, we understand that people work hard and deserve to be compensated for the time that they work. Our Kansas City wage and overtime lawyer understands the complexities of wage and hour laws and has over fourteen years of experience in employment law. If you believe that you are not receiving enough pay for your work or overtime, contact the employment lawyers at Hollis Law Firm today.
What Are Types of Wage and Overtime Claims in Kansas City?
The current overtime laws in Missouri and Kansas state that any hours worked over forty hours in a single workweek count as overtime, unless the employee is considered “exempt” from overtime laws. The Hollis Law Firm handles the following wage and overtime claims:
- Class Actions
- Failure to Reimburse Expenses
- Family and Medical Leave Act
- Meal and Rest Violations
- Medical Leave
- Misclassification as Exempt Employee
- Paid Disability Leave Law
- Paid Family Law
- Unpaid Overtime
There are a variety of circumstances that contribute to disputes over wages and overtime. Often, these disputes include claims that the employee had to work overtime off the clock. While there are some exemptions, many employees do not know the details surrounding their legal rights, and this can result in financial damages to the employees. Contact a trusted wage and overtime lawyer in Kansas City to talk about your circumstances.
Wages and Hours Laws in Kansas City
Employers in Missouri and Kansas must abide by state and federal wage and hour laws to help protect the health and safety of workers. Along with state laws, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) mandates overtime pay and minimum wage requirements for most full-time and part-time workers in both the public and private sectors. More information regarding Missouri’s wages and hours laws is listed below:
The state minimum wage for 2021 in Missouri is $10.30 per hour. There is no minimum or maximum number of hours an employee must be scheduled to work; however, employers must compensate employees for their actual hours worked.
In Missouri, employers must pay at least one and one-half times the employee’s regular rate once an employee works more than forty hours in a single workweek, unless the employee is considered “exempt” from overtime laws. Such exemptions include some commissioned salespeople, seasonal day camp employees, and some domestic workers.
Missouri law does not require employers to provide breaks of any kind to employees. Instead, break rules are left to employers’ discretion and are typically addressed in employee handbooks or company contacts.
If you were denied overtime pay or were not paid according to the hours you worked, you may be able to file a lawsuit against your employer and seek compensation for unpaid wages. Contact the Hollis Law Firm if you believe your employer has failed to pay you your wages.

I would recommend Hollis with all of my heart!
I found out about Hollis Law Firm from an advertisement on TV... I really did not know what to expect, but this firm was amazing. Everyone I spoke to during the two-year period treated me with complete respect. I was amazed how hard the firm worked…They truly never gave up. Hollis Law Firm had succeeded in getting justice for my family. It did not and can never bring my mother back, which is what I truly desire more than any settlement, but I believed in my heart that there was fault on behalf of this company and others. I will always be grateful to all of the lawyers and staff of Hollis for helping me gain closure… Great firm.

Thanks for everything!
My experience working with the Hollis Law Firm was very easily done because they listen to what you have to say and repeat you. Anytime I called Jason Chambers’ office or Bekah’s, the two lawyers that I conferred with each were always very caring and understanding about answering my questions. They would call me often on my case, and let me know what was going on. They were very dependable in keeping me up to date on the case. I will highly recommend the Hollis Law Firm to anybody no matter what kind of case you may have and need a group of lawyers. In my opinion, they are the ‘best, caring, and concerned’ lawyers I have ever had to do business with. I am grateful to have had them to handle my case. Jason and Bekah: thanks for all your hard work and dedication for taking care of me. I appreciate everything you did! I also can say you can certainly be proud to say you work at the Hollis Law Firm because I know you put out a lot of hard work and time on my case. My case came out great as a winner!

The Hollis staff did a great job answering questions!
Jason’s patience with all my questions throughout this rather long process was very reassuring. My many calls were always answered promptly and professionally by the Hollis staff. If Jason was not immediately available, he would always return my calls the same day or at the latest, the next day. The Hollis staff did a great job answering questions, but never guessed at answering. If they could not answer a question they quickly passed it on to Jason. Jason did a very good job of explaining the legal issues with my case, how the process worked, and what all my options were when applicable. Jason and everyone I spoke with at Hollis were always professional and seemed to genuinely care about me and my case. I felt very comfortable working with Jason and the Hollis Law Firm staff. I would be totally at ease recommending Jason and the Hollis Law Firm to anyone.
