COMMON WAGE VIOLATIONS BY EMPLOYERS
Employers have often resorted to subtle tactics to avoid paying employees the overtime they deserve. It is important that you pay attention to the hours you worked and whether they reflect the amount in your paychecks. If you notice wage deductions or missing hours, talk to an attorney immediately. It is recommended that you keep records of all pay stubs and hours you worked for reference.
Ways that employers try to avoid paying overtime:
- Misclassifying employees as exempt category (administrative, professional, executive)
- Requiring workers to work off the clock or through lunch breaks
- Not counting the hours an employee worked
- Not paying the legal minimum wage
MORE ABOUT AN UNPAID WAGES CLAIM
While the employee should have records to support the claim for unpaid wages, the employer also has the burden of maintaining proper records of hours their employees worked. If an employer failed to keep adequate records to defend against the employment law violation claim, then a court may side with the employee in such instances.
