Overtime Pay & Other Owed Wages
Could you be owed overtime pay or other unpaid wages? If you experienced any of the following, the answer may be yes:
- Failure to be paid Overtime: You worked more than 40 hours in one or more work weeks and were paid your straight time hourly rate of pay for all hours worked.
- Salary misclassification: Your employer paid you a salary and no overtime as a “manager” or “assistant manager” but deducted money from your pay or required you to perform the same work regularly performed by hourly employees;
- Uncompensated time: Your employer required you to perform a task but did not count it as “work time”;
- Regular rate miscalculation: Your employer did not increase your overtime rate when you earned bonuses or commissions;
- Rounding: Your employer rounded down your hours worked to short you on overtime when you worked more than 40 hours in one week; or
- Vacation pay: You worked in Illinois or California and your employer failed to pay you earned and accrued vacation.
