Jozwiak Quoted on Wage Theft in Minnesota

February 22, 2018 – Firm partner Chris Jozwiak was quoted in a recent article published by Super Lawyers® entitled, “Wage Theft in Minnesota: A Glaring Problem and a Solution.” The article highlights the many ways in which Minnesota employers take advantage of nearly 40,000 employees each year. Common violations of wage and hour laws include failing to pay employees for all hours worked, misclassifying workers as independent contractors, and unlawfully deducting payments from wages. Chris notes that through a careful, fact-specific analysis, experienced employment law attorneys can help employees understand their rights and pursue their claims as a single employee or on a class basis. The full article can be found here.
