With all the recent exposure and press regarding employment and wage and hour issues, it's hard to believe that employers still blatantly break employment laws and in the process, violate the rights of their employees, exposing themselves to costly litigation and negative publicity. Nevertheless, employment law violations do occur, from small family-owned businesses to well-known industry chains.
