Is It Legal For Your Employer to Force You To Work Without Pay?

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), an employee is entitled to be paid for all hours that he/she works.   The Fair Labor Standards Act is designed to safeguard workers from being taken advantage of.  Even small amounts of unpaid work can significantly impact one’s earnings.  For example, 10 minutes of unpaid work per day can potentially lead to thousands of dollars in unpaid wages over the year.
