Is your age holding you back at work?

Older workers should be prized for their depth of life experience, their years on the job, their wide knowledge base and their seasoned ability to cope with change. Some people just see age as a negative number, though, not understanding the many benefits that come with working with colleagues over the age of 40.

Some wage and hour violations may be the result of an oversight, while others may be intentional. Unfortunately, many workers continue to trudge through their work duties without a full understanding about their right to be paid for all of the hours they work, including their right to overtime pay.
