Employee Issue:


State and federal laws outline the minimum wage every worker must receive. These wage laws also include which employees are entitled to overtime pay. Some employers, however, fail to comply with these laws. Some common violations of wage employment laws include:

  • Not paying overtime
  • Not paying the correct minimum wage
  • Paying youth minimum wage or training wage to those who should be paid more
  • Having employees work off the clock and not paying them for it
  • Deducting for wages paid in goods such as meals
  • Deducting too much in tips
