Yes, you are supposed to receive your hourly rate while traveling between work sites...and not just the IRS mileage rate.

No, you are not supposed to be required to put on your uniform and load up your work truck before you clock in and begin to be paid. 

If you are incorrectly being called an independent contractor (or 1099 worker) and you think it's great because you don't have taxes withheld from your check, think again: you are missing out on important benefits and protections provided to employees, such as the right to file for unemployment compensation. 

These are just a few common issues we see workers in Massachusetts dealing with.

MA imposes a TRIPLE DAMAGES penalty on all MA employers who violate the law. This means that if a company is found to be in violation of the wage and hour laws, then they may end up paying three times the wages they were supposed to have paid the employee.  

 We do not charge any upfront fees to our clients so you do not need to have money saved to pursue a lawsuit. It costs you nothing out of pocket - we collect our fees at the conclusion of your case out of the funds recovered. If we don't win, then we don't get paid. When we take on a case, we aim to win.
