A darn good reason to pay your employees their wages

I could do a lot with the $640 million that Walmart paid employees over the past few years in the name of lawsuits and unpaid wages (including but not limited to completing my Star Wars action figure collection and being the next man to skydive from space).

But Walmart isn’t the only company finding themselves in hot water – here are a few common wage mistakes companies are making:

  • Not putting wage agreements in writing
  • Averaging hours worked over two or more weekends
  • Deducting money from pay without written authorization

Moral of the story?  Don’t be cheap.   To find out other common mistakes and learn more about what you can do to avoid them, click here.
