Businesses Steal $15 Billion a Year from Employees. Is Your Business One of Them?

Evil HR Lady

Wage theft sounds like something that sleazy men in back rooms perpetrate to further oppress their employees. While that does happen, a lot of wage theft is unintentional. A new study from the Economics Policy Institute (EPI) says that employers short their employees by $15 billion a year, which means that millions of people are paid less than minimum wage for their work.

how can we get employees to follow our strict time-of-arrival policy?

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I work at a nonprofit that operates in a very traditional office setting: business professional dress code, strict lunch hours, and a strict 9-5 day. In theory, this is done for efficiency and to allow employees to feel like they have more separation between their work and personal life.
