Employers must pay employees a proper living wage, and cannot “stiff” the employees on the amount of money that they are being paid out in wages each week. The employer has to pay the regular and standard rate of pay, for the hours that are regular hours. If you work overtime, your employer must also pay you for the overtime rate that is required. If the employer for any reason refuses to do any of the above, you have an actionable claim against that employer for a wage and hour claim.
“Help, My Employer Cheated Me Out of My Wages, What Can I Do?”
You are able to recover the compensation for the back wages that are unpaid, any interest on the unpaid amount, and there may be a penalty that the employer will need to pay in some cases. Employers have to pay the minimum wages posted for the state, on all work that is performed by the employees. If the employer refuses to pay the minimum wage for work completed, or the contracted wages as negotiated at the employee’s initial interview for being hired for that job, then there may be a lawsuit filed against that employer. These cases are pretty straight forward: your employer owes you the money he did not pay to you that was for time you did the work at the place of employment.
Employer Obligation to Pay Back Wages for Work Completed by the Employee
An employer is obligated to pay back wages to the employee, for all work previously not paid, but completed by the employee. Employers are not able to require employees to perform specific work on the clock, and then not pay them.
