You are protected under wage and hour laws, regardless of your employer's claims. He or she may claim that an employee is exempt from overtime due to a management title, but the responsibilities are anything but supervisory in nature. An employer can coerce an employee not to clock in to get paid all the hours he or she worked. Employees who require a uniform are denied time to change before and after they perform their job.
Helping Clients with Collective and Class Action Claims
At the Employee Rights Law Firm — Law Offices of Mark A. Jess, L.L.C., we often find that if one employee is a victim of a Fair Labor Standards Act violation, other staff members have been victimized as well. That requires a collective action where employees can opt in or class action where a notice is sent to others who may have been denied pay.
