Pay Stub Violation Attorneys

Leave No Stone Unturned

Many people do not pay too much attention to their pay stubs. However, at the Law Offices of Buchsbaum & Haag, LLP, we frequently find that if you study the stubs closely, there are underpayments and miscalculation of wages.

Paystubs are critical because they explain why the employee was paid a particular amount. Sometimes, however, the paystub does not make sense or is inconsistent with the actual daily time records, which are kept on a time clock or time sheet. This issue is of such importance, that the Labor Code provides a penalty of $100 per employee per pay period for employers who either fail to issue paystubs, or issue inaccurate paystubs.

If you believe that your employer has failed in its duty to provide complete and accurate information on your pay stubs, contact us today.

3. All deductions

4. Total hours worked, including rest break time and waiting time for piece rate employees*
