How Employers Commit Wage And Hour Violations
Workplace wage and hour violations appear in many forms. Major examples of these violations include:
- Failing to pay minimum wage, wages specified in an employment contract, or a prevailing wage
- Failing to pay commissions or taking illegal deductions from employees’ gratuities
- Failing to reimburse for work-related expenses
- Failing to pay overtime or double time
- Forcing employees to work through their meal or rest breaks
- Failing to provide nursing mothers with breaks to express breast milk
Retaliation Is Also Against The Law
Retaliating against employees who report wage and hour violations is illegal. If you were demoted, laid off or fired because you reported a labor violation as a whistleblower, you deserve justice. We can help you hold the parties who demoted you accountable and fight for compensation for your damages.
