While New Jersey’s wage and hour laws, as well as the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), set forth comprehensive guidelines to ensure workers are compensated fairly for their time worked, not all employees are aware of their rights under the law and they may be receiving unfair compensation.
New Jersey Wage and Hour Laws
Under New Jersey law, employees have the right to receive at least minimum wage for each hour worked and are to receive additional compensation for working overtime. Employers must comply with these rules to avoid labor law violations and expensive employee lawsuits.
To ensure you are being compensated fairly and you are aware of your rights, the South Jersey wage and hour lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. provide this infographic listing some of the most common wage and hour violations.
If you notice a mistake on your pay stub and believe you were not compensated fairly, speak with the HR representative or payroll specialist. They will be able to review your timesheet and check for any payroll errors. Most paycheck errors are unintentional, and employers will see to it that the errors are corrected as soon as they are notified.
Unfortunately, some employers will purposely withhold earned wages in order to save themselves some money. If you believe that you have been denied proper wages, speak with a South Jersey wage and hour lawyer at Sidney L. Gold & Associates.
