Wage & Overtime

Uniform Claims

Outten & Golden represents workers in various industries who are forced by their employer to pay for mandatory work uniforms. Under federal law, an employer cannot require an employee to pay for his or her uniform if that cost results in receiving less than minimum wage. Additionally, various state laws protect workers from having to pay for uniform costs out of their own pockets. The law differs depending on the jurisdiction, but an experienced Outten & Golden attorney can assess the liability of a particular employer that deducts the costs of uniforms from employee paychecks.
