Know your rights about your pay. Many employers try to save money by denying their employees their full wages and making them work through their statutory rest and meal periods. Just because you are paid a monthly salary does not mean you are not entitled to overtime pay, shift premiums, meal periods and rest periods.
Often times, employers misclassify employees as independent contractors, denying them of many wages and employee benefits, including overtime pay.
Both federal and state laws require employees to take action within certain time limits, called statutes of limitations. If you take legal action on time, you may be able to recover unpaid wages, overtime, missed meal period and rest period penalties equal to one hour of your regular wage, pre-judgment interest, and other penalties.
