There are strict rules and regulations that govern the payment of wages and overtime pay, and lawsuits for unpaid wages are common. Lawsuit funding for unpaid wages and unpaid overtime lawsuits is a way to get money today while your case is pending or has settled but not yet been paid.
The laws are designed to protect employees and their right to earn a fair living. Sadly, many employers either do understand the laws or simply choose not to abide by them. Some employers do not pay overtime when they are supposed to. Others deduct pay from employees when it is not appropriate or deliberately misclassify employees to avoid paying certain monies. Many others fail to meet the minimum wage requirements and consistently underpay their workers.
When this happens, an employee can file a wage-hour lawsuit to recover money that they have rightfully earned under the law. However, many people avoid this because they fear repercussions at work. Chances are, if you have filed a wage-hour claim against your employer or your former employer, you are having some financial difficulties. After all, you are owed money. It can take a long time to resolve a case involving unpaid wages and your bills may not be able to wait much longer. You don’t want to be pressured to settle for half of what you are truly owed but you have to pay the rent. What are your options?
You can try to get a bank loan or you can max out your credit card. These are certainly options to consider. However, you should consider lawsuit funding as well.
Lawsuit Funding is Different than Traditional Loans
If you are a plaintiff in a wage-hour case or other employment case and you have an attorney, you may qualify for litigation funding. Lawsuit funding is a cash advance that is given to you based on the merits of your case. When you win or settle your case, you repay the advance. If you lose your case, you keep the advance and are under no obligation to pay it back. This differs from a traditional bank loan or ordinary credit agreement that you have to repay under very certain terms no matter what. Lawsuit funding is non-recourse. You don’t repay the money unless you win your case. When you win, you pay us from the proceeds.
Keep in mind that lawsuit funding may also be available if you have already reached a wage-hour settlement or received a favorable verdict and are simply waiting for the money to come through. It is possible to receive litigation funding for cases on appeal as well.
