WHAT IS WAGE THEFT?
Wage theft is the denial of wages or employee benefits that are rightfully owed to an employee. Wage theft can be conducted through various means such as:
- less than the prevailing wage,
- failure to pay overtime,
- kickback payments to your employer,
- employee misclassification,
- illegal deductions in pay,
- working off the clock,
- meal break violation, or
- not being paid at all.
If you are a non-union worker, or know of a non-union worker who is being cheated, email us at email@example.com to know your rights.
If you are a LIUNA member and believe you are being cheated, contact your union agent.
