State Labor Cabinet collects unpaid wages – Richmond Register

In April, the Labor Cabinet recouped $128,417.81 in unpaid wages for Kentucky workers, according to a release.

Unpaid overtime, withheld final paychecks, illegal deductions of pay and lower pay than the legal minimum wage requirement are among the types of wage and hour violations that the Cabinet prosecutes.

Other examples include unpaid breaks, time-clock shaving, mandatory tip-pooling and prevailing wage violations.

The Labor Cabinet’s Division of Wages, Hours, & Mediation is responsible for enforcing Kentucky’s wage and hour and child labor laws.
