    Common Wage Theft Schemes

    Here are some of the common ways that businesses steal from their employees:

    • Overtime violations. Some employers force their employees to clock out early, but keep working.
    • Employee misclassifications. Some employers label their employees “overtime exempt” even though they’re non-exempt. Others misclassify their employees as “independent contractors” so that they don’t have to pay benefits.
    • Some employers withhold commissions or bonuses that an employee justifiably earned.
    • Other employers have a “use it or lose it” paid time off (PTO) policy whereby employees lose vacation days if they don’t use them. Others refuse to pay out unused accrued PTO when they terminate an employee.

    "When I felt all hope was lost, I contacted Graham Scofield to see if he could represent me. He immediately called me back and thoroughly reviewed with me the case. He was the most patient, kind, sympathetic and the upmost professional attorney throughout the entire process. He was also extremely knowledgeable about the law and was creative when the case worked through the twists and turns. He was also a heck of a fighter for me and got me more settlement than I was expecting. I only wish I called him sooner! Thank you so much Graham, you are an amazing lawyer!!"
