How Can I File a Wage and Hour Violation Claim?
If your claim involves a larger amount of money, then contacting an attorney is probably the best way to go so you can maximize what you recover. If the amount is smaller, then you might consider filing a wage and hour violation claim with the Nevada Labor Commissioner. If your employer owes you wages, then file a wage claim.
Before filing a wage claim, you have to make a “good faith attempt” to collect wages from your employer. Also, independent contractors are not allowed to file wage claims. If your employer does not owe you wages but has violated another wage and hour law, then file a complaint with the Labor Commission.
You can also file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor.
