Employer Accidentally Admits Wage Theft While Responding To Ex-Employee's Overtime Pay Request
Many of us love our jobs and go the extra mile to fulfill the company's demands. It's essential for employers to recognize and appreciate these collective efforts. This recognition serves as a catalyst for motivating employees, driving their productivity, and attaining set targets. Employers should conduct performance appraisals, provide bonuses, and compensate for overtime worked. Employees invest their time, skills, and dedication into the company, and if their contributions go unnoticed, it may lead to eventual resignations.
It's awful when companies fail to adequately compensate their employees for their rightful wages. A Reddit user resigned from his job and requested payment for the additional hours he had diligently put into the company. Surprisingly, the boss declined the request, suggesting that complying would set a precedent for compensating all employees who put in extra hours. Isn't this stance rather absurd? Read on for the complete story below.
