Unpaid Wages & Overtime

All employees have the right to be paid promptly and properly for the time they work. Employees are entitled to receive at least minimum wages for every minute they worked. However, many employers try to cheat unskilled workers by paying a lower wage or paying employees with a reduce flat salary. If an employer has violated the law by paying an employee less than minimum wages, the employee may be entitled to significant back wages plus penalties for every pay period.

Non-exempt hourly employees are also entitled to overtime when they work more than 8 hours per day, 40 hours per week, or 6 consecutive days in a workweek. Employers must also pay double-time wages for non-exempt employees working more than 12 hours in workday or 8 hours on the seventh consecutive day in a workweek.

Employers regularly engage in a wide range of unlawful wage practices. Have you noticed that your paystub does not reflect the true time you worked down to the minute?
