Have You Been the Victim of Wage Theft?
You work hard to earn a living. Whether you’re a freelance contractor or a full-time employee, you deserve to receive the payment you’ve been promised. It seems simple: people should be paid for the work they do. Unfortunately, however, many employers actually steal wages from their workers through unfair or illegal practices. Often, victims of wage theft don’t even realize they’re having their money stolen.
If your employer has done any of the following, you may be the victim of wage theft:
- -Making you work after you’ve clocked out
- -Wrongly classifying you as an independent contractor
- -Not letting you record your overtime hours
- -Paying you less than your state’s required minimum wage
- -Asking you to arrive early or stay late, without pay
- -Paying you by the day instead of by the hour
- -Not paying hourly workers time-and-a-half for overtime
- -Not paying you for short, legally required breaks
If you’re unsure whether you have been the victim of wage theft, it is a good idea to talk to an attorney. Experienced attorneys can help you understand wage laws in your state and at the federal level to figure out if you were a victim of wage theft.
The important thing is that you do not have to suffer in silence. If your wages have been stolen from you, a lawyer can help you win the compensation you deserve.
