There are many ways employers can take advantage of their employees, including:
- Requiring you to do work-related things before clocking in or after clocking out, such as changing clothes, or gathering required tools, logging into systems, or attending meetings, etc.
- Not paying for all your hours worked.
- Requiring you to do work-related duties during your unpaid lunch/meal breaks.
- Not paying overtime at the rate of one-and-a-half times your regular rate of pay.
- Misclassifiying you as an exempt employee and not paying you overtime.
- Requiring you to be on-call and calling you back frequently but not paying for the on-call time?
- Failing to pay workers the minimum wage

These are more common wage and overtime scams or violations by employers in certain industries or occupations.
Workers who have not been paid appropriately by their employer may feel that there is little they can do — that the employer has all of the power in such a situation. But, that is not the case. With experienced legal representation, workers who have been denied the full pay they are owed under the law can take action to secure back pay as well as damages and attorney fees.
