Wage Theft/Unpaid Wages

Wage Theft/Unpaid Wages

Under state and federal law, you are entitled to the minimum wage for the first 40 hours you work in any week. After the first 40 hours, you are entitled to overtime wages at a rate of time-and-a-half your normal hourly rate, with few exceptions. Even if you are salaried or commission-based, state and federal laws entitle you to be paid all monies you are owe in a timely manner.

If you are owed unpaid or underpaid hourly wages, commissions, or salary, you may have a legal claim against your employer. In cases in which numerous employees are owed unpaid or underpaid wages, it may be possible to take action against your employer on a class action or collective action basis.
