Wage and Hour Violations Lawyer
Wage and hour violations are the number one way that employers violate an employees rights. Almost everyone has experienced this in some form or another. For instance, if you were made to work through your lunch without being given another break and not being compensated for the time. Many people know that this is at least somewhat illegal. However, many don’t know that salaried workers do not have to work unpaid overtime. For example, if you were asked to stay past your shift and do a job totally unrelated to your position you are owed money for your time. Wage and hour violations can also come up for those working tipped positions. Although you may be hired to work at $3 an hour and make up the rest in tips, if you’re not hitting a minimum salary you need to be compensated. Never accept an employer working you unpaid after your scheduled work time.
