It is startling how frequently employers refuse to pay their employees all the wages they worked for and are due.
Wage theft occurs when:
• Employers refuse to pay their employees at least the hourly minimum wage ($8.56 in CO).
• Employers refuse to pay their employees “time-and-a-half” for each hour worked over 40 in a week.
• Employers pay the same hourly rate for overtime hours that they pay for non-overtime hours.
• Employers require employees to work hours “off the clock” without pay.
• Employers require employees to perform work during meal breaks or rest breaks.
• Employers misclassify employees as salaried/exempt from overtime pay.
• Employers fail to pay tipped employees at least the server minimum wage ($5.54/hour in CO).
• Employers require tipped employees to share their tips (via a tip pool) with managers or with other employees who do not regularly receivetips (such as cooks, dishwashers, janitors, etc.)
• Employers treat their employees as independent contractors, and deny them minimum and overtime wages.
• Employers require employees to remain “on call” but fail to compensate them for the “on call” time.

"And, inasmuch as most good things are produced by labor, it follows that all such things of right belong to those whose labor has produced them. But it has so happened in all ages of the world, that some have labored, and others have, without labor, enjoyed a large proportion of the fruits. This is wrong, and should not continue. To secure to each laborer the whole product of his labor, or as nearly as possible, is a most worthy object of any good government.”
Abraham Lincoln -1847
