Unpaid Overtime: Tipped Worker’s Rights
Employers frequently violate the law when it comes to paying tipped workers, especially when it comes to overtime. Tipped workers are entitled to time and a half for work time over 40 hours in a week. Employers of tipped workers often ignore this requirement altogether, reduce an employee’s work time by requiring off the clock work, or calculate the overtime rate in an illegal way. However they do it, it’s wage theft.
You can combat wage theft by understanding overtime laws and hiring a qualified wage and hour lawyer. Georgia Wage Lawyers advocate tirelessly for tipped workers. Our team specializes in recovering overtime wages. Learn more about unpaid overtime and tipped worker’s rights!
