What is Wage Theft?
It is startling how frequently employers refuse to pay their employees all the wages they worked for and are due.
Wage Theft Occurs When:
Employers refuse to pay their employees at least the hourly minimum wage.
Employers refuse to pay their employees “time-and-a-half” for each hour worked over 40 in a week.
Employers pay the same hourly rate for overtime hours that they pay for non-overtime hours.
Employers require employees to work hours “off the clock” without pay.
Employers require employees to perform work during meal breaks or rest breaks.
Employers misclassify employees as salaried/exempt from overtime pay.
Employers fail to pay tipped employees at least the server minimum wage.
Employers require tipped employees to share their tips (via a tip pool) with managers or with other employees who do not regularly receive tips (such as cooks, dishwashers, janitors, etc.)
Employers treat their employees as independent contractors and deny them minimum and overtime wages.
Employers require employees to remain “on-call” but fail to compensate them for the “on-call” time.
