Overtime Pay

You may have a right to recover overtime wages which were never paid to you.  Examples of such situations include

No Overtime for Extra Hours--Working extra hours, or on weekends or holidays, and only be paid straight time instead of time-and-a-half or double time

Uncompensated Business Travel Time--Travel time to and from the place you perform the work for your employer going uncompensated.

Forced Work Through Lunch Or Breaks--Being forced to work through lunch hours or time set aside for work breaks.

Unpaid Time for Gearing Up--Not being paid for time spent putting on and taking off special work uniforms.

Improper  Classification As a Manager--Being told incorrectly that you are not entitled to overtime because you are a "manager" or "supervisor" or have some other title of authority--often persons with such titles are still entitled to overtime pay.

Improper Claim That Salaried Employees Are Exempt-- Being told incorrectly that all employees "on salary" do not deserve overtime pay

Improper Docking of Pay--Deducting or docking pay improperly for salaried employees: if you are on salary, in most cases you must be paid your full weekly salary every week without regard to the number of days or hours actually worked.

Improperly Claiming Independent Contractor Status--Mistakenly classifying workers entitled to overtime pay as "independent contractors": once again, the title matters less than the work you do and the responsibility you are given.

Failure to Pay For Training Time--Not being compensated for training time.
