Under specific federal employment laws, the government strictly enforces the payment of wages. You will need to confront your manager or your employer if you experience any issues getting paid the correct hourly wage or working overtime hours that were not compensated. Employers can be held legally accountable if they do not resolve your issue.
According to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employees who have unpaid wages from their employers are offered remedies, and the employers are also punished for their refusal to pay. Underpaid workers may also work together to ensure that employers recognize overtime laws, no matter how small the underpayment for an individual might be.
