How Wage Theft Trickles Down to Every American Worker

Wage theft in New York City and around the nation has a nasty ripple effect

Even though wage theft is getting more press now than ever, employers are not responding well to increased allegations. Yet, the issue of wage theft persists not just in New York, but around the country, and employees are getting fed up with it. Some of them are turning to legal action to recoup wages owed to them and to help send a clear message to employers that this behavior is illegal and unacceptable.

According to a report from the Economic Policy Institute, wage theft around the country deprives employees of up to $50 billion every year. Some organizations designed to help victims have popped up around the country to help employees understand their rights, and wage theft attorneys in New York and all over are seeing a need for their legal services. Many employees might know they are a victim of wage theft but they are afraid to pursue legal action for fear of retaliation. Our New York wage theft attorneys give employees a voice and options to move forward, fighting for wages owed and putting an end to unfair practices.

The most common forms of wage theft include situations where employers pay their workers less than minimum wage, short overtime pay that is due, and decreasing hours. Another practice coming under fire includes that of forcing employees to call into work before coming in, known as “on-call scheduling”. Wage theft attorneys are at the forefront of this battle, exposing exploitative practices and helping employees regain the rights they are entitled to in the workplace.

Do you believe that you or a loved one is a victim of wage theft? It might be time for a private consultation with an experienced New York City wage theft attorney to learn whether your situation qualifies and the next steps in filing a case. While there are plenty of outstanding employers out there who understand the value of following legal and ethical guidelines for their employees, far too many bad employers are taking advantage of well-meaning workers and families.
