Problems with your Paycheck? Should You File a Claim of Wage Theft?
The last few months of systems glitches, programming issues, and Crew Scheduling errors have resulted in numerous pay issues. Our Flight Attendants continue to report issues such as:

  • Pay calculations on paystub are incorrect
  • Resolutions reached for contractual violations that the company agrees to pay are not being paid promptly
  • Premiums are sometimes not being paid
  • Pay No Credit is not being properly added above guarantee
  • Direct Conflict Pay is not reflecting on the paycheck
  • Crew Schedule errors are not being paid
  • Any other issue that has been researched, and not paid

Please remember to check your pay stub.

Additionally, you may want to contact the Department of Labor (DOL)’s Wage and Hour Division. The link to report a claim may be found at https://www.dol.gov/whd/howtofilecomplaint.htm; please keep in mind that the DOL cannot investigate certain issues like vacation pay or sick pay.
Your state may provide you with greater protections than federal law. Below are the links for each state’s department of labor.
It is always best to seek advice from legal counsel, as proceeding through the state or federal government may limit other legal remedies available to you.
