Do you know your right to over time pay? How about your right to payment for pre or post shift work? Your boss does not want you to know about your legal rights. These bosses are pros and not paying their employees according to the law. You need to be prepared to protect your rights or you will lose and so will your family and coworkers. Unfortunately, we see far too many people misinformed about their legal rights as employees. Misinformation can spell disaster!
That’s why we’ve taken the time to write the enclosed special wage rights report and offer it for free to anyone who asks for it. The stories you have heard are true about bosses not paying their employees according to the law. Empowered by the information in the enclosed special report and a wage rights audit, this does not have to happen to you, family members, friend or co-employees.
Employees whose jobs are governed by any Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) are either “exempt” or “non-exempt. Most employees are non-exempt and are entitled to overtime. Whether you are exempt or non-exempt depends on how much you are paid, how you are paid, and what kind of work you do.
There are 9 common “mistakes” employers make:
1. Failing to pay overtime to non-exempt employees.
2. Failing to pay for pre-shift or post shift work.
3. Requiring authorization of overtime.
4. Failing to pay wages for interruption of un-paid meal breaks.
5. Giving comp time in a different work week in lieu of overtime.
6. Giving an employee at title and telling them they’re no longer entitled to overtime.
7. Paying salaries to non-management personnel in an effort to avoid paying overtime.
8. Falsely telling you that your immigration status affects your right to collect lawful collect wages.
9. Failing to pay domestic workers overtime if they work more than five days without at least 24 hours off.
Your overtime must be paid to you during the pay period in which the work is completed. This applies to all overtime pay that is due to an employee. This means that if you worked over time, you must be paid for that over time on the next payday. Your overtime does not require authorization of your employer. This means your employer cannot say to you he did not authorize your over time and try to use his preauthorization rip-off to refuse to pay you.
You must be paid for all work that benefits your employer. This can include preparation time for any time you fall under the employer’s control. This means your boss cannot refuse to pay you for the time preparing for your work. For example, a house painter must be paid for the time he uses to prepare and clean his equipment. You can not be forced to wait, unpaid, on call. If you are under the control of your boss, you must be paid.
Have any of these “mistakes” happened to you? Our Special Report provides you with all the information you need to get the pay that is rightfully yours. In your wage rights audit, our attorney will determine if your employer is violating these laws and explain your wage rights in detail.
If your employer has failed to pay you wages or over time lawfully due you, you may be entitled to damages that far exceed the actual dollar amount originally owed to you. For example, if you are successful in an overtime wage claim against your employer, you are entitled to overtime wages, interest, and attorneys fees. The court may award you an additional amount of liquidated damages equal to the amount of overtime that should’ve been paid. You may be entitled to thousands of dollars. Willful violations may subject your supervisor in the company to a fine or even criminal liability.
Enforcing your wage rights will prevent your employer from hurting another employee. Employers must not be allowed to abuse their employees and, perhaps, only way can be stopped is with the help of a lawyer.
