Wage and hour law violations including failure to pay overtime

Some typical violations are:

  • Not paying some salaried employees overtime.
  • All employees must be paid what they have earned, even if they quit or are fired from a position. This includes unpaid vacation and wages, but may not include bonuses, if the bonuses are not scheduled to be paid while the employee is still employed.
  • Employees who receive commission are also subject to commission payments after leaving a company.
  • All hourly full-time employees are entitled to be paid time and a half for all hours over 40 worked in a workweek.
  • If the employer automatically deducts 30 minutes for a lunch break, it must give the employee that time to eat lunch without also requiring some work during that time.
