Luis was a victim of over-time wage theft during a period of three years. His boss never recognized his over-time work, a situation in which the Luis was unsure of his rights.
He began to seek legal recourse but his economic situation did not allow for him to pay a lawyer. As a result of the outreach performed by the Northwest Arkansas Workers Justice Center, he found out where our center is located and came to seek assistance.
From there the orientation process began with analyzing the status of his case. Luis sought the needed information to help the center mediate with the employer.
The information he was able to obtain regarding over-time worked allowed for a successful mediation, which resulted in the Luis recovering $6,000.
