4 Signs That You Are Being Improperly Compensated

No matter how much a person may love their job or career, it is very unlikely that someone would be willing to work for free or for less than they are owed under current employment laws. Unfortunately, there are countless workers who may be working for less than they are worth without their knowledge due to being improperly compensated. 

It can be difficult to identify the fact that you are not being properly compensated. However, if you suspect that this could be your reality, there are some signs to look out for. These signs include the following:

  • You are working overtime but not seeing any extra money to compensate you for that overtime in your paycheck. This could be an indicator that your employer is withholding the overtime pay you are owed.
  • You work in an industry where you are paid tips but you rarely ever see the tips you are owed.
  • You notice that your employer has improperly misclassified you as exempt.
  • The amount of money you see in your paycheck is not adding up to the amount you are working, or it is coming out to be below the minimum wage.

If you believe you are being improperly compensated by your employer, you have the legal right to file an underpaid or unpaid wages claim with the help of a trusted unpaid or underpaid wages attorney in Texas.
