Hourly workers are notoriously short-changed when it comes to overtime pay. Hourly employees work hard and deserve all of the wages that they legally are entitled to.

Hourly workers can include:

  • Food Processing employees
  • Maintenance workers
  • Sanitation workers
  • Recruiters
  • Refinery Workers
  • Call Center Workers
  • School District Employees
  • Security Guards
  • Restaurant Workers
  • Stadium Workers
  • Retail Workers
  • Inside and Outside Salespeople

Hourly employees have special legal rights relating to breaks, minimum wage, working off the clock, illegal wage deductions, and inaccurate wage statements. Hourly workers who reside in states like California, Illinois, or New York may even have more rights. Hourly workers should pay special attention to these rights if any of the following apply:

  • Don and Doff: Non-payment for donning and doffing of clothes or equipment as part of the job
  • “Off the Clock” Work: Performing any work for your employer while “Off the Clock”.  This includes work performed pre-shift, post-shift, at home or even during an unpaid meal break
  • Auto Deduct: Auto-Deduction of meal periods; meaning your employer deducts your mail period regardless of whether you actually get a break
  • Per Diem with Hourly Pay: Employees who receive a per diem or special allowance for alleged meals, travel or other expenses
  • Underreport Hours: Employers who under report hours or alter time records
