When an employer fails to pay an employee legal minimum wage or their promised wages, the employee has a legal claim for damages against the employer. Wages include any kind of payment for work performed, including earned commissions and non-discretionary bonuses. An employee may also have a legal claim for unpaid wages if their employer does not follow overtime or break laws. To recover the owed wages, potential penalties and interest, the employee can either bring a lawsuit in court or pursue an administrative claim with the state’s labor department.
