Wage & Overtime

Time Shaving

Outten & Golden attorneys stand at the forefront of the movement to stop employers from illegally shaving time off employees’ work hours. Unscrupulous employers hope to profit from their hourly employees by altering time records to avoid paying them for all hours worked and for premium overtime rates. Time shaving violations vary from industry to industry and from employer to employer, but the law is clear: hourly workers must be paid for all hours worked and paid overtime rates for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek.  

Employers who shave time off workers’ time cards are brought to justice by Outten & Golden attorneys through high impact class action lawsuits that force them to comply with the law and repay their workers for the wage theft they suffered.*
