Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and welcome. My name isXXXXX am a Licensed practicing attorney and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
This is an issue,
does the employer have a policy that sets the rate?
Or are they bound to pay the state prevailing wage?
Under the law in VA,
an employer sets the wages, unless a Union contract or Government regulates the wages
If the employer has created a contractual agreement with the employees,
you can file a wage complaint or lawsuit,
claiming the employer violated or breached a contract.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.
everything in the computer is based on the shop charging a labor rate of $85 an hour, the times entered for any services calculates the amount charged to the customer and the computer also calculates the wage the technicion earned as well..it clearly shows him making $39 an hour and he stated to me that he only makes $32 and showed me his paycheck.. this is fraudulent to me.. it calculates to over $40,000 difference in what the technician earns and what the computer says, which in turn affects my bonus because its being calculated off of bogus figures.
You can could consider a lawsuit against the employer if you feel the payment is unwarranted and a breach of contract,
You should verify the damages you faced due to this payroll issue, and see if the employer violated your agreed upon wages.
