Get help if you're not being paid correctly at work

There is never any reason that an employer shouldn't understand how to pay their employees appropriately. There are state laws in place, federal laws to abide by and even specialty attorneys and accountants who can help guarantee that they're paying in accordance with the law.

If you have been working for an employer but don't see the appropriate pay, it's important that you reach out to seek help. Wage and hour violations are extremely serious, and you should not be the one who is going without the compensation you deserve for your hard work.

What should you do if you believe that your wages aren't being paid correctly?

The first step is to talk to your employer. There is a chance that they've made an honest mistake or that there was a computer glitch, scheduling error or other problem that resulted in an inappropriate payment being made to you. There is also a chance that you've misunderstood the pay period and that you didn't understand the amount you should be paid correctly.

After you talk to your employer, a discrepancy may be found. Your employer should be willing to look into and correct any mistakes they made. If they don't or won't, then you may want to reach out to your attorney.

Our website has more information about what to do if you've been paid less than you should have been by your employer or if you have questions about making a claim. You work hard, so there is no reason that you shouldn't be paid appropriately and in a timely manner.
