Wage & Hour Overview
State and federal wage and hour laws entitle Indiana workers to fair and timely wages. The Federal Fair Labor Standards Act and the Indiana Minimum Wage Law are designed to protect your rights if your employer fails to pay you overtime, pays you less than minimum wage, or forces you to work off the clock.
The law is on your side if your employer is in violation of state or federal wage laws. At Stewart & Stewart Attorneys, our Indianapolis wage and hour lawyers are passionate about protecting your rights. Our legal staff can review your pay history and determine if you have a claim. We want to help you get the compensation you’re owed. Contact our 24/7 team to get started today.

Unpaid Overtime and Minimum Wage Claims
We handle a variety of wage and hour disputes, including:
- Unpaid Overtime
In Indiana, if you work more than 40 hours in a week, you may be entitled to additional overtime compensation and back pay.
- Minimum Wage
Indiana minimum wage is currently $7.25/hour or $2.13/hour if you’re a tipped employee and your tips cover the difference between your paid wages and the minimum wage. If your employer pays you less, you may be entitled to compensation.
- Working Off the Clock
Federal law states that your workday begins with your first work-related activity and ends when you finish your last work-related activity. You may be able to file a claim for back pay if your employer pressures you to perform unpaid work.
You may be worried that demanding a fair wage or overtime pay could result in termination, reduced hours, or other unfair treatment. But our Indianapolis wage and hour lawyers are here to protect you from employer retaliation.
