Wage & Hour Violations

Understanding Wage and Hour Violations

Wage and hour violations encompass a range of unlawful practices that employers may engage in, depriving workers of their rightful compensation and benefits. These violations not only undermine the financial security of employees but also disregard the laws and regulations designed to protect their rights.

Why Understanding Matters

Understanding wage and hour violations empowers you to recognize instances where your workplace rights are being violated. Armed with this knowledge, you can take proactive steps to address these violations and seek legal recourse when necessary.

Common Wage and Hour Violations We Handle:

  1. Failure to Provide Meal and Rest Breaks: Employers are required to provide designated meal and rest breaks to employees according to state and federal laws. Failure to do so can result in employees being denied the necessary time to rest and recharge during their workday.
  2. Unpaid Overtime: Non-exempt employees are entitled to receive overtime pay for hours worked beyond the standard 40-hour workweek. Employers who fail to compensate employees for their overtime hours are in violation of labor laws.

  3. Inaccurate Wage Statements: Employers must provide accurate wage statements that detail important information such as hours worked, wages earned, and deductions. Inaccuracies in these statements can lead to confusion and underpayment.

  4. Untimely Wage Statements: Timely wage statements are essential for employees to track their earnings and ensure they are being compensated correctly. Employers who consistently delay providing wage statements are infringing on their employees’ rights.

  5. Failure to Reimburse Business Expenses: If employees are required to cover business-related expenses, employers are typically obligated to reimburse these expenses in a timely manner.

  6. Failure to Pay Minimum Wage: Every worker is entitled to receive at least the minimum wage set by federal and state laws. Employers who pay less than the legal minimum wage are violating their employees’ rights.

  7. Misclassification as an Independent Contractor: Some employers misclassify workers as independent contractors to avoid providing benefits and complying with labor laws. If you perform duties under an employer’s control, you may be entitled to employee benefits.

  8. Misclassification as an Exempt Employee: Certain employees may be misclassified as exempt from overtime pay when they should be classified as non-exempt. This can result in unpaid overtime for those who are entitled to it.
