Our overtime wage attorneys have discovered that many workers are being scammed out of overtime by being classified as “salary” employees. One common unpaid wage or salary scam is a when an employer applies a work rule stating that employees who are on salary are not owed overtime.
The law looks at several different factors as applied to your specific case is to determine if you are owed overtime pay as someone who is paid a salary. Further, even if you signed a contract saying that you would not be owed overtime pay, that contract is void under the law. Sometimes employers intentionally misclassify their salary employees in order to intentionally avoid paying overtime. Our wage claim attorneys will be able to help you determine whether you are being misclassified.
