Even though the economy has started to recover, employers continue to cut corners in an attempt to increase their profits. One of the easiest ways employers can reduce costs is by cutting back on the wages they pay employees. As employers look to squeeze more out of employees while cutting costs, many workers are forced to work off the clock or more than 40 hours without overtime pay.
Millions of dollars in unpaid overtime and unpaid wages are awarded every year to employees whose state and federal labor rights have been violated, including the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). If you were forced to work off the clock or without overtime pay compensation, you have the right to seek compensation.
