In some cases, an employer might make an honest mistake. For example, the employer might have never hired an employee for your position before and may have never sought legal counsel. When this occurs, you may find that you have worked overtime while your employer believes that you are actually exempt. Because these exemption rules can be complicated, it's important to speak with an attorney to determine whether you are owed overtime pay.
People who are unable to work as a result of an illness or injury often choose to file for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Filing an SSDI claim with the government can be a great way to access the financial resources you need to maintain your quality of life while you are in recovery. Unfortunately, many applicants become disheartened when they discover that the processing of SSDI claims can take a significant amount of time.
