I work at a construction doing excavation and I am responsible for some of the equipment. A $2,550 compactor was stolen from me on the jobsite. My employer reported it stolen to the police and to the insurance. The insurance only covers some of it...
You have a wrongful deduction claim. In addition to the unpaid wages, you could recover a matching amount of the unpaid wages, or $200 per deduction, whichever is greater. In addition, you may have minimum wage issues or overtime issues which may entitle you to a civil penalty. Finally, you could recover your attorney fees. If your employment ends, you could also recover penalty wages.See question

You must be paid minimum wage. This is also the most likely result from a suit. Though the minimum wage could be increased through penalties.See question
When I was hired, I was told they pay on every Friday, but hold your first weeks pay and it is paid to you on your final paycheck. On Dec 18, 2016 they laid everyone off for three weeks. Upon returning to work on Jan 9, 2017 I learned they hold ev...
There are three nearly identical questions. I assume they are the same person or group of employees. If not, then the answer is the same. All wages are due on payday. In your case on Friday. Nothing allows the employer to hold, deduct, or however you want to phrase it, wages that are due.See question
I work for an Oregon employer who pays every Friday. When I started working for them they held my first paycheck like is usual. I started working for them January of 2016 and did not receive that "waiting week" check until Dec of 2016. Then they ...
It is irrelevant what they are doing with the money, the problem is that the wages were due on payday. Multiple claims exist for those wages. It could also be, depending upon the size of the company, that there is a class wage and hour case available. This means it may be possible to sue for all employees at the same time.See question

Not in Oregon. All wages must be paid on payday. You could have a minimum wage claim entitling you to 30 days of penalty wages. You could also have overtime claims, wrongful deduction claims, and unpaid wages claims. Some attorneys will take wage claims on a contingency fee basis and provide you with a free consultation. They can explain the benefits of the suit and the risks to you if you decide to file the suit.See question

You may want to file with BOLI. They have a fund that may pay some of your wages. You may also have a special status in the bankruptcy itself and be paid before most other creditors.See question
I'm wondering if I am guaranteed to get my bonus if I give my two weeks' notice before the bonus kicks in, even though my actual final day will be after the bonus is deposited. We are a private company that gives a yearly bonus on a guaranteed dat...
It is unclear. My expectation is that they will not. I regularly have clients call me regarding this issue. It depends upon the exact wording of the contract, but more often than not, the contract is unclear on the issue.See question
Got to k needed to work this week and was let go when I went in. Need to know if I'm still supposed to be paid for the whole week since I'm on salary
The employer can, but is not required to. On the final paycheck the employer can pay for what was worked.See question
Today is my payday, so I should be getting paid today. But I am not. Is there anything I can claim or any lawsuit?
Failure to pay on payday, for employers subject to the FLSA (federal wage laws), is a minimum wage violation. This is true even if you eventually get paid more than minimum wage. In addition to the unpaid wages, you likely are due a matching amount of the unpaid minimum wages. Oregon law likely is the same, though no case exactly says so. Under Oregon law, you could be due one day's wage, at 8 hours per day, for each day they were late paying the wages.See question
I was wondering because i am a dish washer and i am constantly working through my 8 hours sometimes 10 hours a shift. I would be okay if they actually handed me food while i work.
If they pay you for all your time worked, there is no benefit financially for raising the issue. Sometimes they deduct 30 minutes from your pay, as if you had taken a lunch, but you were not provided one. In that situation, you would have unpaid wages, and could get 30 days of penalty wages in addition to the unpaid wages. If not, your only recourse is to complain to BOLI. They can fine the employer, but you get no portion of that fine.See question
