Unpaid Overtime / Wages
Federal law requires that non-managerial employees working in excess of 40 hours per week be paid time-and-a-half for all hours worked in excess of 40. It is a common practice for some companies to either not pay overtime or to improperly classify a worker as management to avoid paying overtime. An example of an improperly classified worker is a retail cashier titled as an assistant manager. Some companies simply fail to give workers proper credit for overtime by not acknowledging extra work even though it is clear that the employee has worked in excess of 40 hours in a particular week.
Other times, employers fail to provide any compensation for work performed, or provide compensation less than minimum wage or than a salary previously agreed to by the worker and the employer. In each of these cases, the employer may be in violation of the law.
