Wages and Hours

Wages and hours are the components of the basic math that makes an employment relationship: In exchange for their time, employees receive money. To some extent, how much money and how much time are largely left to negotiation between employer and employer. But there are some basic legal rules that establish things like the minimum wage, overtime pay, required breaks, and so on. 

The articles in this area explain those rules. Looking for information on getting paid for travel time, whether you can be required to work overtime, or whether your employer can claim a portion of the employee tip pool? You'll find the answers you need here.
