Worker Misclassification and Wage and Hour Law

Over the past several years, state and federal government agencies have been aggressively pursuing initiatives aimed at business owner employers to stop and correct misclassification of workers and collect overtime wages, back pay and taxes.  Penalties imposed on employers can be severe.  Workers who have been misclassified or not properly paid are also pursuing “wage theft” claims against business owners for unpaid overtime and benefits. These claims are attractive to many plaintiff attorneys because of potential awards of attorneys’ fees and treble damages.
