When an employer pays an hourly rate less than the minimum wage or makes an improper deduction, that’s wage theft. Wage theft is not something to be taken lightly, and Barkan Meizlish, LLP is here to ensure that hardworking individuals are guaranteed their fair pay.
If you suspect that your employer has failed to pay you correctly, or made improper deductions from your pay, you may be entitled to pursue action.
Misclassification of workers is one of the most common violations that leads to wage and hour lawsuits. This means that employees get classified as non-exempt or exempt employees, leading employers to not pay benefits or overtime pay. To read more about misclassification of workers, click read more.
Another common wage and hour violation involves improper deductions. Many deductions unlawfully reduce workers’ pay below the minimum wage, regardless of whether the employer takes the costs out of wages or requires employees to reimburse the employer. If your employer has attempted to deduct these or other improper costs and expenses from your pay, diluting your compensation below the minimum wage, you may be entitled to recover the amount of those deductions.
