Whatever happened to honest pay for an honest day?
It's bad enough that low-wage jobs are often the most dangerous and least secure. On top of that, many low-wage workers are not getting paid the wages or benefits required by law. Employers may deliberately "misclassify" their workers as independent contractors to avoid paying taxes and benefits; or they may engage in "wage theft" by underpaying or even not paying the workers at all.
Join the Public Justice Center for a conversation about strategies to enforce workers’ rights to honest pay for honest work. We will discuss our efforts to implement and enforce the 2009 Workplace Fraud Act that penalizes misclassification, and recent legislative initiatives to combat wage theft in Maryland and other states. Bring your strategies, questions, and experiences to share.
