About Getman, Sweeney & Dunn, PLLC

There is a long history of labor exploitation in this country, from slavery through the great depression and on to the workplace of today. Despite the vast wealth created within the economy, the gap between rich and poor has widened, workers' wages have scarcely risen for the last fifty years and half of US households have a net worth less than $11,000. Why? Corporate wealth and power are more concentrated than ever. Employers use their economic and political might, along with their lawyers, to deny workers all pay the law requires. Employees take a beating as employers treat them as "independent contractors," require them to sign arbitration agreements and class action waivers, fail to record all the hours they work, steal tips, and ignore or flagrantly violate the law. Today, employers prevent employees from suing them in court and the Supreme Court has even allowed companies to ban class actions by workers against them. As fewer workers than ever are protected by unions, corporations and their owners have gotten richer and workers have had to fight for a small share of the pie their labor creates. But workers don't have to go it alone against the companies that cheat them. Getman, Sweeney & Dunn is a powerful voice for workers. GSD stands with working people to enforce wage laws designed to guarantee them fair wages for their work. We fight wage theft, helping workers get the pay they are legally owed plus additional damages and penalties. We handle overtime and minimum wage cases, claims for unpaid commission, promised wage, tips shaving, unlawful deductions, unreimbursed business expenses, and a wide variety of other federal and state law wage claims. We represent employees and independent contractors working throughout the U.S. We regularly sue multinational and Fortune 500 companies. We are proud to have recovered over a hundred million dollars in pay wrongfully taken from employees. We handle class actions for tens of thousands of cheated workers and we handle cases for individual workers just as diligently. We don't charge fees upfront. We get paid by the losing employer when we win or settle your case.
