Such non payment violates the fair labor standards act and state labor law. It is a wage and non payment of a wage is illegal subjecting the employer to liability for amount not paid, liquidated damages, legal fees. It may be pursued through labor board, state court or federal court. Often a lawyer makes demand and settles out of court. If being done to others at work, class action is available avenue too. Kindly rate me 5 stars.
