Wage theft occurs when an employer fails to pay you the wages and compensation you are owed when it is due. The law provides strict timelines for full payment of final wages at the end of employment, and provides for penalties and attorney fees for a successful claim. The law also provides limited reasons that an employer can make deductions from employee pay.
Misclassification occurs in one of two ways. The first is an employer treating someone as an independent contractor when they are actually an employee. The second is an employer treating an employee as exempt from overtime and minimum wage laws when they are actually entitled to both.
In both wage theft and misclassifications, employees can miss out on wages they are due, sometimes for years. If you are owed wages from an employer, you may have a legal claim. You can schedule a call with Klein Munsinger or complete this short form and we will contact you.
