Wage Theft

Employees deserve to be paid all of their wages. However, all too often, employers steal from their employees’ wages to make higher profits (this is called wage theft). This can happen in many different ways. You may be a victim of wage theft if you are:

  • being misclassified as an “independent contractor”
  • being misclassified as “exempt” unpaid overtime
  • being forced to work off of the clock
  • not being allowed to take meal breaks
  • not being allowed to take 10 minute rest breaks
  • being paid less than minimum wage
  • not being paid your tips
  • not being paid commissions, or promised bonuses
