Torrance, CA asked in Employment Law for Wisconsin

Q: Work paying me only $9hr when supposed to be making $11hr for last 6 months. Received no pay stubs to be alerted either.

I am 19 and I work at Buffalo Wild Wings where I have been for over a year. I started as a cashier making $9. But then I was asked if I wanted to be a cook instead and that they start at $11 an hour. I needed that extra money so I said yes and I've been working as a cook there for over 6 months now. I recently just found out that they never adjusted my pay from the $9 greeter salary and thats what I've only been getting for working the $11hr cook job this entire time. I have direct deposit so they also never gave me any of my pay stubs over this time so that why it took me so long to notice. Do I have the right to any compensation? I already know I am going to quit but I want to know if I'm entitled to anything first.

A: The short answer is yes. As long as you can show that the employer agreed to pay $11 per hour, you are entitled to that.
