Wage and Hour Violations
The federal Fair Labor Standards Act guarantees workers certain rights and Mr. Mendelsohn will work to ensure that workers are fairly compensated for wage and hour violations such as:
- Off-clock work (Requiring workers to perform unpaid prep work before their “official” shift, or making them clean up or perform other duties after punching out)
- “Donning and doffing” (Failing to pay workers for the additional time to put on and remove protective gear)
- Failure to pay overtime (time and a half)
- Miscalculations of pay or overtime
- Requiring workers to work through lunch breaks
- Requiring workers to punch out for paid breaks
- Refusing mandatory meal or rest breaks
Employers can be liable for each instance of a denied break or off-clock work, compensated by a full hour’s pay plus penalties. When these violations have been systematic over time, it can add up to a substantial amount of money.
