Are your wages being stolen?

We all know the economy is in bad shape. People and businesses are struggling. But unfortunately, some companies are trying to raise profits by short-changing their workers.

EXAMPLE: One chain of retail stores in Kentucky has been forcing its hourly workers to “clock out” for lunch, but then continue working through their lunch hour! Each worker therefore has an hour’s work stolen from them, every day. That kind of money adds up!

This practice is highly illegal and WRONG! Several workers from the company described above contacted us and told us what was happening. So now we are filing a lawsuit against the company, and fighting to get back the workers’ wages that were stolen.

Unfortunately, this type of “wage theft” has become common among companies today. And there are many other, different ways, in which employers can rip off their workers. This is just one example of what has been happening. You may see this type of situation described as wages and hours cases.

If this type of wage theft is happening to you, I urge you to FIGHT BACK! If you or someone you know is having their wages stolen (Whether by the "lunch hour" method, or through some other scam) Give us a call!

We’ll talk to you about your situation for free, with no obligation. We will tell you honestly if we think you have a case. And as always with the Frank Jenkins Law Office, if you choose to hire us, you will owe us nothing until we win or settle your case.

So give us a call ASAP, and let us help you hold onto your hard-earned wages!
