Learn more about how independent contractor misclassification can affect your wages.
There are countless reasons as to why you may not have been paid all your wages. The truth is that workers can be owed wages for a multitude of reasons. Each time you are not paid for work that you complete, it adds up. Often workers think or are told by employers, that the small amount of money unpaid isn't worth collecting or won't add up to an amount that will make a difference. It's time to think again.
Wage theft occurs throughout all industries, so you are not alone. In 2021 over 36 million construction workers, 13.8 million healthcare workers, 34.7 million food service workers, and 13.4 million retail workers all filled to reclaim their unpaid wages. In the US alone, over $230 million was returned to workers from wage theft. Not only are you not alone, but you are also owed money for any overtime hours you have worked.
We have seen this happen to workers time and time again. We have fought over 1,800 cases and stood behind 100,000+ workers to right the wrong that has been done to them, to fight to get back the money that they deserve. We have won several multimillion-dollar settlements, including a $2.3 million independent contractor misclassification settlement, as well as a $2.25 million settlement in an oft-the-clock case.
