Getting the pay you deserve shouldn’t be something that takes a battle. Instead, you should be able to count on your employer to pay you what you are due. Unfortunately, there are some employers out there who don’t do this. When you’re faced with issues with your pay, you need to take action to get your rightful wages. This can be as easy as approaching the employer or as complex as having to file a formal complaint and lawsuit.
There are several things that you need to think about when you are trying to figure out what to do about the issues you’re having with pay. One of these is what your desired outcome for the issue is. If you are still interested in working for the employer and think that the issue was just an oversight, you might choose to simply speak to the employer to try to get the situation corrected.
It is possible that you will have to take legal action against the employer. This isn’t something to take lightly, so think carefully about what you are going to do. We can help you to evaluate the options for getting your money. You can go through these and determine which option you’d like to pursue.
Another issue that some employees face is that employers don’t want to have to give them their rightful breaks. This is another area of wage and hour law where you can take action to get your employer to comply with the applicable laws. You should realize that break guidelines aren’t just suggestions about what should happen. They come from laws intended to protect workers’ rights.
