Wage and Hour Violations

Wage and Hour Violations Employment Law

Wage and Hour Violation Law:

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) protects workers from being deprived of fair payment by their employers for their time. The most common wage and hour violations occur in high tech industries, food industry jobs, construction jobs and hotel jobs. Wage and hour violations include:

  • Unjustly classifying an employee as exempt, to stop paying them over time
  • Unjustly classifying an employee as a contract worker, to stop paying them over time or providing benefits
  • Forcing employees to keep working for the duration of their meal breaks
  • Depriving employees of additional breaks for more than 10 hour work days

Wage and Hour Legal Issues:

It can be difficult and sometimes frustrating to recover wages from an employer. In most cases, employers use the defense that they simply overlooked payment and don't admit to a wage and hour violation.
