The Wage Authority Group is dedicated to educating U.S. workers about wage and overtime laws and championing employees’ right to fair pay.
Every day, businesses engage in wage theft that rob employees of compensation they’ve earned. Sadly, employers get away with unlawful pay practices because workers don’t understand federal and state labor laws, don’t feel they have the power to challenge their employers, or wrongfully believe they will be fired in retaliation for exposing wage abuse.
The Wage Authority Group, a collection of nationally-recognized attorneys who focus on wage and overtime law, and who created this site to give workers necessary information, guidance, and support.
Laws such as the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and similar state statutes protect employees from minimum wage violations, denial of overtime pay, uncompensated meal breaks and rest periods, unpaid off-the-clock work, and other unfair workplace pay practices, and ensure a path to pursue recovery of unpaid compensation through our nation’s legal system.
We are committed to fair compensation for workers across all industries regardless of job title, education level, or work experience. If you put in an honest day’s work, you deserve an honest day’s pay!
