Unpaid Wages / Wage Violations
Under Iowa law, wages include compensation owed by an employer for work or services performed by an employee, including bonuses and other performance incentives. Under certain circumstances, vacation, paid time off, and sick leave are also considered wages. Employers are legally obligated to pay their employees in regular intervals and Iowa’s Wage Payment Collection Act provides employees relief and damages when their employers fail to pay wages as required under the law.
