A: Your specific location may help inform an answer. Feel free to email me directly and I could possibly point you in the right direction.

A: Hello, more information is needed here. Were your hours deducted or how specifically were you a victim of wage theft? Were you paid hourly and worked more than 40 hours in a week? Employers are required to pay all employees in accordance with federal and state minimum wage and overtime laws. I would reach out to an employment law attorney in your state for a consultation.
