Employees expect to be paid the wages that they are promised in employment contracts and
other hiring or employment handbook materials. A recent jury verdict in mid-Missouri drove that
message home, as Missouri prison guards were awarded substantial back pay. LINK
These prison guards had performed tasks that required them to be on-site and on-duty, such as
clearing security screening to report for watch and then again when exiting the prisons. But they
were never properly paid for this time over the course of several years.
