Can I file wage and hour claims for required tip pooling?

In Kentucky, there are many reasons for workers to file wage and hour claims. It can happen in jobs where people earn salaries, make commissions or work hourly. For those who are in the service industry and rely on tips, there are certain issues that will frequently arise and negatively impact their take-home pay. In some cases, the employer is committing violations and workers are unsure of how to go about putting a stop to it. With workers for whom the bulk of their salary comes from tips, there is often a fear of the idea of "tip pooling" when it is forced by the employer. It is important to know the state law for this, so you can seek justice if illegal behavior is occurring.

Can I file wage and hour claims when deprived of breaks?

Kentucky employees might think that wage and hour claims for employer violations are limited to not getting paid what they are owed per hour. That is part of it, but there are other aspects of the law that will protect workers too. There are many laws that employers are required to adhere to in how workers are treated and that extends to various areas. For employees who are facing violations, it is important to understand their rights and that they are entitled to certain benefits. That includes breaks.

What should I know about wage and hour claims and overtime?

Kentucky workers have the right to be paid a fair amount that complies with state law for work they have done. With the changes to the law for minimum wage, workers are now earning more than they did in the past. However, questions are frequently asked about overtime, how much they are supposed to receive, and who can receive it. Knowing the law for overtime is critical to getting what they deserve. If there is a dispute over wage and hour claims, having legal help is essential.
