Legal Aid solution for wage recovery

The Legal Aid Service of Broward County (LASBC) is clearly the best solution to assist employees in recovering unpaid wages.  Just look at the success of the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County in helping employees jilted by unscrupulous employers.

Palm Beach’s wage recovery machine has taken in an average of $2,082 in lost wages per worker through a holistic approach simply focusing on the solution—taking cases, working them and recovering money using current law.  Executive Director Bob Bertisch issued a report showing $114,511.14 has been collected thus far for 55 employees—all without passing a duplicative ordinance.

Similary, Broward Legal Aid Executive Director Tony Karrat does a phenomenal job with his team helping thousands of individuals with little or no fanfare.  His organization is ready and willing to assist in the wage recovery process with the appropriate support.

However, some Broward County commissioners seem dead set on passing an ordinance mirroring state and federal laws that have been on the books for over 70 years when all they need to do is look in their own back yard for the solution.
