Wage & Hour FAQ

Wage hour FAQAll work exchanges are generally the same: money paid for hours worked. However, wage and hour rules can get confusing, especially as certain rules may differ depending on the state you are in, or your employer’s requests.

Despite the fact that there may be differences in the way wages and hours are handled, there are certain aspects that are protected under employee’s rights, such as:

  • Overtime
  • Minimum wage
  • Travel
  • Training time
  • Wage garnishments
  • Hour cuts
  • Furloughs
  • Much more
