In the United States, workers enjoy a wide variety of different rights and protections under the law. Some of the most important of these protections are the wage and hours guarantees that our government makes to all workers. While certain types of workers are exempted from these protections, in most cases, all employees are guaranteed a minimum wage for their services and enhanced pay for any hours they work over the 40 hour work week maximum.
Unfortunately, far too many employers try and deprive their workers of their hard-earned wages, engaging in a number of violations of both overtime law and minimum wage law. Fortunately, workers who have not been paid in full for the work they have performed may be able to take action against their employer in order to pursue compensation for the wages they have been denied.
State and Federal laws have been enacted to protect workers’ rights regarding the wages they are paid and the hours they work. Some unfortunately common violations of these laws include:
These and other common wage and hours violations can lead to workers being paid significantly less than they should be. Fortunately, many workers have the right to take legal action in such a situation to get the pay they are owed.
