Unpaid Wages & Wage Theft in Florida

Unpaid wages and wage theft can occur in a variety of ways, and uncovering those offenses is much easier with the help of a competent employment lawyer.

Examples of wage theft include:

  • Refusal to pay you overtime
  • Refusal to pay you for working off-the-clock, such as answering work emails, preparing work reports or documents from home, being “on-call,” working during meal breaks, attending work-related classes, or attending before- or after-work meetings
  • Paying you less than minimum wage
  • Classifying you as “exempt” in an attempt to deny overtime
  • Classifying you as an independent contractor to deny you overtime pay
  • Failure to properly track the hours you actually work
  • Pooling your tips with employees who do not receive tips, thus shortchanging your actual income
  • Averaging your hours over more than a one-week period, thus denying you potential overtime pay in any one week
  • Failing to pay you a final payment after leaving employment

Despite local ordinances, state, and federal laws, some employers still find ways to avoid lawfully paying employees. These violations need to be brought to the attention of an experienced employment law attorney who can help you recoup your losses. Our Florida unpaid wages lawyers are here to fight for your rights.
