Common Wage & Hour Issues Employees Face
Wage and hour issues are not just about paying minimum wage. Employers must abide by multiple regulations as set forth by the Fair Labor Standards Act and other labor laws. These laws include classification of job duties, handling independent contractors lawfully, correctly calculating hourly wage, and more.
Some of the violations employers commit include:
- Assuming a salaried employee is overtime exempt
- Incorrectly paying piecemeal or commission workers
- Forcing or encouraging untracked, “off-the-clock” working
- Exerting power over contractors as though they were employees
- Encouraging job duties that are not in line with the employee’s title
