In some industries, employers intentionally classify workers as independent contractors – not employees – to circumvent the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and state labor laws. Allegations have been made that haircut franchises are among the employers who may be unlawfully withholding compensation from their hourly workers.
Employee misclassification is regrettably common in the U.S., and is frequently used to avoid paying overtime for time worked in excess of 40 hours per week. But some types of suspected wage abuse are specific to salons and hair care businesses.
If you are employed by a salon, including large chains like Great Clips, SuperCuts, Sport Clips, Fantastic Sam’s, or another haircut franchise and suspect you have been a victim of wage theft and abuse, please contact us today to discuss your right to money damages.
