Oregon Wage Theft: the illegal practice of withholding wages from an employee; it is especially common among low wage and illegal workers. 

Oregon Worker Misclassification: illegally classifying an employee as an independent contractor to avoid paying benefits or taxes

  • Refusing to pay workers at all
  • Refusing to pay overtime when it's due
  • Misclassifying employers as independent contractors
  • Wrongly deducting an employee's pay
  • Minimum wage violations‚Äč
