Wage & Hour Claims
Are you being paid what you are owed?
Overtime. Oregon law requires employers to pay employees for overtime hours worked unless the employer can show that the employee is exempt from overtime laws. Hours that contribute to overtime may include time spent working off-site, off-the-clock or "on-call."
Final Paychecks. Oregon law requires employers to provide your final paycheck within strict time periods or face mandatory penalties for late payment.
Internships. Oregon law requires employers to pay a minimum wage for almost all employees. Interns are sometimes excluded where they are receiving another kind of benefit from the internship experience. But if your internship is failing to provide you with a true learning experience you may be entitled to unpaid wages. Especially, if your employer is using the free labor of interns to do work that a regular employee would have been paid to perform.
You are entitled to be compensated for all the hours you work.
