Not every employer is professional enough to pay you for the extra hours you work for the company.
Most of us love our jobs and put extra effort to get the work done for the company on their demands and employers should acknowledge everyone’s efforts. That’s how you motivate your employees to boost their productivity and achieve the targets. Employers should give performance appraisals, bonuses and should pay for the overtime they have worked. Employees contribute their efforts, time and skills to the company and if a company does not acknowledge any of that, the employees would eventually resign.
It’s awful when companies don’t pay the wages employees actually deserve. A Reddit user resigned from his job and asked his boss to pay him for the extra hours he has worked for the company and guess what? The boss refused to pay him by saying if they paid him, they would have to pay all the other employees who work extra hours for them. Is not it ridiculous? Scroll down to get into the complete story.
1. OP resigned from the company and asked to be paid for the extra hours.
2. The head of the company refused to pay OP for the extra hours he had been working for years.
3. Here is what Redditors think about OP’s situation:
4. The company has made a confession by replying to OP.
5. Only a generous employer can admit that his employees have worked extra.
6. OP is going to contact the Department of Labour regarding this matter.
How disgusting do you have to be to admit that you are actually stealing your employees’ money and at the same time he is making it look like it would be unfair to other employees to pay OP his unpaid salary? Like seriously? You are doing something immoral but at the same time have to show your moral values. Well, at least, he confessed to this grand wage theft and we believe, it is evidence that can go against the company if OP files a legal case against the company.
7. OP should send another email:
8. Here is someone who is ready to help OP with an action plan:
9. OP’s boss would never realize that he is stealing his employees’ wages.
10. OP is answering the most asked questions.
11. OP contacted the Department of Labour, they did not care about OP’s case.
12. Since Department of Labour did not listen to OP, he would now interpret the law himself and try to resolve his case.
OP has decided to hire an attorney to fight for his case and we are totally with him. We have no tolerance for employees’ mistreatment. What do you guys think? What would you advise OP to do to get his unpaid salary?
