You did not reveal your gender, but among other potential claims, you may have a cause of action under the the Equal Pay Act, which requires that men and women in the same workplace be given equal pay for equal work. The jobs need not be identical, but they must be substantially equal and this is...View More
Required to enter our time started or ended only in 15 min chunks. If our work takes us 5 minutes past end of shift we are told we must stay and work another 10 minutes to get paid for the 5; if 5 early and start working we lose those. But they dock us to the minute if we are late or leave early.... View More
This could potentially be a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), a federal law that requires non-exempt employees be paid time and a half for hours worked in excess of 40 hours per week. There are other laws that may be implicated, but my answer is based on the FLSA, which allows an...View More
This sounds like a violation of the Equal Pay Act. You may be entitled to back pay, interest, attorney fees, and litigation costs. Where the court finds a lack of good faith, an employee can recover back wages in the amount of double the back pay award (called “liquidated damages”)....View More
I work for an agency. They put me on salary to not have to pay me overtime but I was told that is wrong and I should be paid overtime even though I am salary and also was told that they should not be deducting from my pay if I have to leave an hour or two early but they do deduct currently

Union vote for a segment of employees was counted 4/8. Since then a 4% raise was approved for everyone but the segment of employees who took part in the union vote and a 2.5% bonus was announced today again for everyone but those who will have union representation. Is this legal?
I'd like to hear more about this, but based on your representation, it appears to be unlawful discrimination under the National Labor Relations Act. For example, Section 8(a)(3) of the Act makes it an unfair labor practice for an
employer to discriminate against employees “in regard...View More
On January 18th we were notified that we were being let go from our position that day with no notice at all. Our Temp Agency was not aware of this till the day they ended our contract. Was that legal? If not how do we set up a class action against them?
I'd like to know more information because the answer likely depends on whether you had a contractual relationship with CVS or just the temp agency. The at-will doctrine applies in Pennsylvania and essentially allows an employer to terminate an employee for any reason or no reason. There are...View More
