Wage Payment & Allocation

Under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, and although there are exceptions, hourly workers typically must be paid time-and-a-half for hours worked in excess of forty hours in a given work week. Employers sometimes attempt to extract "free" uncompensated time from their workers by requiring them to perform pre-shift or post-shift "set up" work before clocking-in or clocking-out, by failing to pay them on-call time or indeed by simply refusing to pay overtime rates.

Everyone deserves a fair wage for a fair day’s work; it is something inherent to this country’s values. It is an unfortunate reality in today’s world that employers often care more about their bottom line then the rights of their workers. Other fair wage issues include improper deductions from your paycheck, failure to pay commissions, wages owed to an employee who has been terminated, and neglecting to pay for earned vacation time.

Sometimes these cases are isolated involving individual employees, but more often they are systematic, involving the workforce as a whole.
