Arizona employees who have been denied wages they are owed may have claims under the Arizona wage laws set forth in Title 23 of the Arizona Revised Statutes. They may also have claims for breach of contract. There are also state and federal laws governing minimum wages in Arizona. Additionally, with respect to employees who are not exempt under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employers are required to pay overtime pay of at least one and one-half times their regular rates of pay for hours worked in excess of 40 in a workweek.
Employees who have not been paid their earned wages should promptly seek legal advice so that they do not miss the applicable statute of limitations.
