What is employee misclassification?
Labor laws entitle many types of North Carolina workers to overtime. But people who should be considered legal employees are often wrongfully classified as independent contractors or paid daily or hourly. When this happens, hardworking Americans get denied a minimum wage, overtime pay, and benefits. Misclassification is so common that the U.S. Department of Labor considers it one of the most serious problems affecting our country’s economy.
If you work more than 40 hours per week without overtime pay, contact Crumley Roberts. Our North Carolina overtime pay lawyers can listen to your story and help determine if your current or past employer owes you additional or overtime pay—even if you’ve signed independent contractor paperwork.
Industries That Underpay Workers
Any employer can misclassify employees as independent contractors or hire day-rate or hourly labor, but the practice is common among businesses in the following industries:
- Home health care
- Food and beverage
- Building maintenance
Whether you work for a small business or a huge corporation, every North Carolina employer is obligated to pay its employees for the time they’ve worked.
