Filing a Complaint Against Your Employer

If your employer has withheld regular wages from you or refused to pay you for overtime hours that you have worked, you should immediately file a claim with the United States Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD). WHD focuses on ensuring that all employees receive the wages that they are due.

When filing a complaint with the WHD, the information you will need to provide includes:

  • Name
  • Contact information
  • Name of the company you work(ed) for
  • Address and phone number of the company
  • Manager’s or owner’s name
  • Type of work you were engaged in
  • Days and methods of payment

The more information you can give the better. It is best if you can provide WHD with a personal record of hours worked, copies of your pay stubs, and any details about the company’s pay practices. If you file a complaint, you can do so worry-free of your company retaliating against you. There are laws in place that protect you from the adverse action of your employer-based on you filing a claim against them.
