American blue and white-collar employees are some of the hardest workers in the world. Billion dollar businesses would collapse overnight without them. Yet, time and again, businesses take advantage of their employees and refuse to fairly compensate them.

Here are some of the common ways that businesses fail to pay fair wages to their employees:

  • A business might force its employees to clock out early and keep working so that the business can avoid paying overtime wages.
  • A business might misclassify certain employees as “overtime exempt” so they aren’t eligible to receive overtime pay.
  • A business might fail to pay commissions or bonuses that an employee justifiably earned by meeting production or sales quotas.
  • A business might misclassify employees as “independent contractors” in an attempt to avoid paying Social Security, Medicare, or federal unemployment insurance taxes.
  • A business might have a “use it or lose it” paid time off (PTO) policy whereby employees lose vacation days if they don’t use them. Or, the business might refuse to pay out all unused accrued PTO when it terminates an employee.
