Wage Theft Lawsuits on the Rise


According to a recent article in The New York Times, lawsuits alleging wage theft are on the rise. In recent years, a number of suits have been filed in regards to withheld pay, tip skimming, erased hours, refusal to pay overtime, and similar forms of theft. These employment issues are both illegal and unethical, and demand the swift attention of an experienced attorney.
