Employment attorney Adam Gonnelli discusses how more employees are falling victim to a crime committed by their own employer.
As your employer has to make sure they are not getting scammed by employees by workers "eating the clock" or taking money, they also have to cause you no harm as well. Employers have to make sure that they treat you fairly as well. Wage theft is the act in which employers do not pay you for the work that you do. Examples of this could you being forced to work while off the clock, sharing tips and working through lunch but getting deducted for that time. Wage theft can happen in any type of job or industry including food service, healthcare and even finance. Whatever your job is you deserve to get paid for any and all hours that you work.
