My wife is being replace by a illegal-immigrant.

Asked 12 months ago - Guyton, GA

She is a server and was asked to work 6 days a week 12 to 13 hours per day. Only for $500.00 per month. She should earn $951,24 for working 338 hours with normal taxes with held. Because she refused to work for $500.00 plus paying normal taxes. Now she has been reduced to part time work. They have replaced he full time position with a Chinese illegal-immigrant making $500.00 under the table and pay no taxes. What should I do. I am a legal immigrant. This is very unfair.

    Answered . This is not an ICE forum. We cannot comment on the fairness of that, only tell you that if you feel law was violated, you should report to ICE.

    Answered . Your wife should also consult a wage and hour attorney. If she was a tipped employee, the employer met all the rules associated with the tip credit, and she worked 72 hours a week, she should probably have received gross weekly pay of $269.20. If she was not a tipped employee, or the employer did not correctly apply the tip credit rules, she shoud probably have been paid $637.84 per week. She should contact an employment lawyer. Check the website fot the Georgia affiliate of the National Employment Lawyers Association, www.nela-ga.org, for a listing of Georgia employmetn lawyers. Good luck
