  • Is my boss embezzling my money?

    Allright, I started this job about a year ago and Im kind of a workaholic.

    I don't take lunch or breaks.

    I just found out today that my boss has been removing 30 minutes from each day that I work regardless of me never taking a lunch.

    I'd also like to add that at this job I usually only work 4-6 hours a day, 3-5 days a week(part time 15-20 hours a week).

    Do you think I can get this money that in my opinion is owed to me? Or have I basically been working for free?

    Ia. doesn't require any meal or rest breaks for adults (only minors under 16).
    However; if your employer requires you to take a meal and/or rest break, you
    need to take them unless you have a binding employment contract to the contrary.
    If you don't take them, you can be disciplined up to & including termination.

    However; if you are a non-exempt employee, you must be paid for all hours/
    time worked. If you don't get paid for this time by your employer, you can file
    a wage claim with your state's "DOL."
