The Court may order the employer to pay all attorney fees in addition to the money owed the employee. If no money is collected you pay nothing.

If you worked over 40 hours a week and did not get extra overtime pay, meaning extra time and one-half pay, your current or former boss may owe you money.
You may be entitled to extra overtime pay even if you were paid by the week or the day or paid by commissions or by the piece.
Most workers are entitled to EXTRA overtime pay if they work over 40 hours a week but many employers will wrongly tell employees they do not have to pay overtime:➢ Because the worker is paid "salary" or "piece rate" or "by the job" or "commissions"
Workers cannot legally agree to give up their right to overtime pay. Employers are not allowed to simply decide whether a worker is entitled to overtime pay or whether a worker will be an "independent contractor."
Even if you signed a written agreement allowing your employer to not pay you overtime, or to only pay you a portion of your overtime, that agreement is not enforceable if Federal law says you are entitled to overtime pay.
Non-payment of overtime is huge problem in the United States. It is estimated that 70% of employers in the United States fail to pay legally required overtime pay or fail to pay workers the full and proper overtime they are owed.
