Workers in Wisconsin usually want to do a good job at work, put in the required hours -- or more -- and receive fair compensation for their efforts. Sadly, some employers try to get out of paying workers what they deserve. If you are not sure whether your boss violated employment law regarding your compensation, keep some of the following in mind.
Not every worker automatically receives overtime pay. If you are classified as an independent contractor or an exempt employee, your boss does not have to provide overtime pay when you work more than 40 hours in a single week. Unfortunately, some employers purposely misclassify workers to avoid paying overtime.
