Labor Laws and Overtime Violations
Most employers play by the rules. Unfortunately, there are some employers that do not fairly compensate employees for overtime work. In addition, complex and often convoluted pay policies and misclassifications can cost employees significantly. In some cases, an employer may purposely schedule an employee for 36 hours of work but expect them to finish an amount of work that requires 40 or more hours to complete. As a result, an employee is forced to take work home in order to meet the requirements of his or her job.
