Through the efforts of the federal Department of Labor, state labor departments and private lawyers, almost $2 billion has been recovered in 39 states during 2015 and 2016. Wage theft occurs when employers refuse to pay promised wages, remunerate employees for only some of the hours they worked, or fail in overtime payments when an employee works for more than 40 hours in a week. California recovered $117 million for workers between 2015 and 2016, followed by New York which won back $84.6 million.
