Wage Theft: Not Being Paid for Work
Wage theft occurs when an employer fails to pay benefits that are owed to an employee. It is a broad category that includes not paying overtime, paying less than minimum wage, misclassification of employee status, illegal deductions from your paycheck, working off the clock, or simply not being paid at all.
Wage theft is a common problem in the United States. Employees are routinely not paid all of the money, wages, salary or benefits owed to them.
