Hourly Wage Cases: Paid Training and Meetings

Hourly Wages | Shegerian & Associates Help You Get the Pay You Deserve

If your employer has subjected you to training exercises outside of your regular work hours or requires meetings that are also not during workdays, you should receive adequate compensation for these activities. It often happens that an employer will mandate training sessions before your work can begin, while also refusing to pay your salary during that time. There are also training exercises on weekends at times, and you should also receive pay for those hours, too. Finally, any mandatory meetings, especially those that take place at night or on the weekend, should be paid as well.

Get the Pay You Deserve

If you have been subjected to unpaid training and meetings, you do have a course of action. You can seek legal representation to help you get the compensation you deserve. Be sure you have adequate documentation of every meeting and training session, as well as proof that you participated. Seek out legal representation that doesn’t require payment until your case is settled.
