Am I entitled to back wages in connection with my required training?
While there are some exceptions, if you are an hourly-paid employee performing training or studying and reading materials after work, you should be paid. If you are a lower-level manager learning the company’s policies and procedures, or shadowing other employees while you learn to become a manager, you generally should be paid an hourly-wage, including overtime for any work beyond 40 hours in a week.
If I’m considered a manager, can I get paid for overtime?
Yes. Many managers are wrongly paid a salary and classified as “exempt” from overtime by their employer. However, under federal and most states’ laws, whether you are a true manager turns on your job duties and not your job title or the company’s job description. You may be called the Chief Executive Officer, but if you clean the bathroom and sweep the floors are you? No, you are a janitor entitled to receive overtime if you work more than 40 hours in a week. The same is true if you are told you are a manager but spend most of your time doing the same thing as the hourly-paid workers who receive overtime.
My male coworkers are doing the same work as me but getting paid more. Do I have a claim against my employer?
You may. Many female workers often receive less than their male counterparts for performing the same type of work. Many federal and state laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of pay. If you are earning less than your male colleagues, call us.
Is my employer required to pay me for hours spent working “off the clock"?
Yes. If you are an hourly-paid employee, all time you spend working for the benefit of your employer must be paid. This includes time spent working before your shift starts, during lunch, and after your shift ends. “Off-the-clock” work – performed when you are not “clocked-in” to the company’s timekeeping system – is illegal.
What are my options for recovery if my employer delays payment of wages?
Many. The law prohibits unreasonable delays in the payment of wages (typically anywhere from 7 – 30 days after you performed the work). We can reach out to your employer to try to expedite the payment process and, if necessary, sue to recover your wages. Often the delays are associated with the failure to pay overtime where you have been classified by your employer as exempt.
I was fired for complaining about not receiving overtime. Is that legal?
No. It is illegal for your employer, including a supervisor, to retaliate against you for complaining about a violation (or perceived violation) of the law. Retaliation may take several forms – a demotion, reduced hours, unfavorable shifts, negative performance reviews, discipline, and being fired. It’s wrong, and your employer knows it.
