Wage And Hour Violations

The law regarding overtime is simple: a nonexempt employee must be paid time-and-a-half for all hours worked over eight hours in any workday and over 40 hours in a workweek.

Some companies routinely violate wage-and-hour laws by:

  • Making nonexempt employees work through lunch breaks
  • Take unpaid rest breaks
  • Opening or closing the business on unpaid time

Others classify certain workers as managerial and therefore treat them as exempt from wage-and-hour laws, even when these employees are not really managers.

If you and your co-workers have been made to work off-the-clock or if you have been mistakenly classified as an exempt employee, you may be entitled to compensation for your unpaid overtime and benefits.
