This is Chris Garlock, with Union City Radio’s Your Rights at Work tip of the day:
DC workers who have experienced wage theft have the right to collect damages on your unpaid wages. When someone is not paid their wages, they can experience severe consequences, including falling behind on bills, taking out high-cost loans, and even losing their homes. You have the right to demand damages, which increase for each of the first 30 days that the wages you are owed are late.
